GADOLINIUM CHLORIDE Usage And Synthesis
  • Physical PropertiesWhite monoclinic crystal; hygroscopic; density 4.52 g/cm3; melts at 609°C; soluble in water.
  • PreparationGdCl3 is prepared by heating gadolinium(III) oxide with excess of ammonium chloride above 200°C:
    Gd2O3 + 6NH4Cl→2GdCl3 + 6NH3 + 3H2O
  • Chemical PropertiesColorless crystals, soluble in water, purities up to 99.9%.
  • UsesGadoliniuM chloride, anhydrous is a calcium-sensing receptor agonist and is known to work by inducing NLRP3 inflammasome activation in bone marrow-derived macrophages.
    GdCl3 is used for preparing gadolinium metal.
