Lutetium Chloride (LuCl3) Description

Lutetium chloride (LuCl3), also known as lutetium trichloride, is one of the important lutetium compounds. Compounds of lutetium always contain the element in the oxidation state +3. Aqueous solutions of most lutetium salts are colorless and form white crystalline solids upon drying, except the iodide. Lutetium salts, such as nitrate, sulfate, and acetate are water-soluble while oxide, hydroxide, fluoride, carbonate, phosphate, and oxalate are insoluble in water. Lutetium is silvery-white and is the last element in the rare earth series. However, unlike most rare earth, Lutetium lacks a magnetic moment and is the least naturally abundant element of its series. The mineral monazite is the most common source of commercially produced Lutetium.
