Description of Cerium Hexaboride Rod

Cerium Hexaboride (CeB6, also known as Cerium boride) is an inorganic chemical. It is a refractory ceramic material, which is insoluble in water or hydrochloric acid and very stable in a vacuum. Stoichiometric samples of CeB6 have a blue metallic luster. CeB6 is also a superconductor and semiconductor with a relatively high melting point of 2552 ℃.
