Description of  Praseodymium Metal

Praseodymium is a soft silvery malleable rare earth metal. It reacts slowly with oxygen forming a green oxide coating. To protect praseodymium for this reaction, praseodymium is usually stored in a sealed plastic container or covered with oil. Praseodymium also reacts quickly with hot water to form praseodymium hydroxide. Praseodymium metal tarnishes slowly in air and easily burns at 150 °C to form praseodymium (III, IV) oxide.

Praseodymium Metal is used as a high-strength alloying agent in the Magnesium used in parts of aircraft engines. It is an important alloying agent in Neodymium-Iron-Boron magnets. Praseodymium is used to create high-power magnets notable for its strength and durability. It also used in lighters, torch strikers, 'flint and steel' fire starters, etc. Praseodymium Metal can be further processed to various shapes of ingots, pieces, wires, foils, slabs, rods, discs and powder.

Applications of Praseodymium Metal

• Praseodymium is used in goggles to protect the eyes of welders.
• Praseodymium, combined with neodymium, is used to create high-power magnets due to its strength and durability.
• When alloyed with magnesium, praseodymium creates a high strength metal used in aircraft engines.
• Praseodymium is also used to color cubic zirconia yellow-green, to simulate the mineral peridot.
• Praseodymium oxide can be used as oxidation catalysts.
