Cerium Oxide Powder Properties

What is Cerium Oxide CeO2 powder ?

Cerium(IV) oxide, also called ceric oxide, ceric dioxide cerium oxide, or cerium dioxide, is an oxide of the rare-earth metal cerium. It is a white, pale yellow powder with the chemical formula CeO2.CeO2 is an important commercial product and an intermediate in the purification of the element from the ores. The distinctive property of this material is its reversible conversion to a non-stoichiometric oxide.

Cerium oxide has a 7.13g/cm3 density and a melting point of 2397℃. It is insoluble in water and alkali but slightly soluble in acid. Under temperatures of 2000 ℃ and 15 mph, pressure can be achieved by hydrogen reduction cerium oxide. Cerium oxide temperature between 2000 ℃ and free pressure-free at five mph. Cerium oxide is light yellow, reddish, and pink, and its performance is to be polished material, catalyst, catalyst carrier (assistant), UV absorber, fuel cell electrolyte, automobile tail gas absorber, electronic ceramics, etc.

Performance of Cerium Oxide CeO2 powder:

At a temperature of 2000℃ and a pressure of 15MPa, hydrogen can reduce cerium oxide to obtain cerium oxide. When the temperature is free at 2000℃, and the pressure is free at 5MPa, the cerium oxide is yellowish, reddish, and pink. Its performance is to make polishing materials, catalysts, catalyst carriers (auxiliaries), ultraviolet absorbers, fuel cell electrolytes, automobile exhaust absorbers, electronic ceramics, etc.

How is Cerium Oxide CeO2 powder produced?
Cerium salt roasting method:
The cerium salt roasting method is to put the raw material containing cerium into the baking furnace with the flux and perform oxidation roasting at high temperatures to produce cerium oxide and carbon dioxide gas. The reaction equation is:
2CdCO3(s) + 3O2(g) → 2CeO2(s) + 2CO2(g)
The product was filtered, washed, and dried to obtain cerium oxide. To improve the purity of cerium oxide, it is also necessary to carry out purification treatments such as washing and neutralization. This technique has the benefits of easy equipment, simple operation, and cost-effectiveness. However, it's not an easy task to make high-purity Cerium oxide.
Cerium nitrate method:
The cerium nitrate method uses it as raw material dissolves it in water, adds an appropriate amount of oxalic acid or acetic acid, heat concentrates, and then dries to obtain cerium oxide. The reaction equation is:
Ce(NO3)3(aq) + H2C2O4(aq) → CeO2(s) + 2HNO3(aq) + CO2(g)
The cerium nitrate method needs to use nitric acid as a solvent, which is easy to cause environmental pollution. At the same time, the method also needs to be washed and dried several times, and the production process is more complicated.
Oxalic acid precipitation method:
The oxalic acid precipitation method is the reaction of oxalic acid and cerium nitrate to produce ceric oxalate precipitation and filtration, washing, and drying to obtain ceric oxide. The reaction equation is:
Ce(NO3)3(aq) + H2C2O4(aq) → CeC2O4(s) + 2HNO3(aq)
The oxalic acid precipitation method has the advantages of a simple production process and high product purity, but the cost of oxalic acid is high, resulting in high production costs.
Co-precipitation method:
The co-precipitation method is to add an appropriate amount of alkali to the solution containing a variety of cations so that the cations and anions are precipitated together, and the cerium oxide is obtained by filtering, washing, and drying. This method has the advantages of a simple preparation process and high product purity, but it isn't easy to prepare high-purity cerium oxide.
