Lutetium Carbonate (Lu2(CO3)3) Description

Lutetium Carbonate (Lu2(CO3)3), also known as Lutetium (III) Carbonate Hydrate, 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.
