About of Cerium Oxide

  Oxide Ion Cerium Oxide is a highly insoluble thermally stable cerium source suitable for glass, optic and ceramic applications. Cerium oxide is produced by the calcination of cerium oxalate or cerium hydroxide. Ultra high purity and high purity compositions improve both optical quality and usefulness as scientific standards. Nanoscale cerium oxide as an alternative high surface area form, may be considered. The numerous commercial applications for cerium include metallurgy, glass and glass polishing, ceramics, catalysts, and in phosphors. In steel manufacturing it is used to remove free oxygen and sulfur by formingHigh Purity (99.999%) Cerium Oxide (CeO2) Powder stable oxysulfides and by tying up undesirable trace elements, such as lead and antimony. It is considered to be the most efficient glass polishing agent for precision optical polishing. Cerium Oxide is generally immediately available in most volumes.
