Expert Reviews

Dr. Bruce Perrault, Ph.D, (Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), USA)

Dysprosium Chloride: Dysprosium is used in nuclear reactors as a cermet, a composite material made of ceramic and sintered metal, to make laser materials, nuclear reactor control rods, as sources of infrared radiation for studying chemical reactions. Another use in the field of radioactivity is in dosimeters for monitoring exposure to ionizing radiation.

Dr. Myron Rubenstein, Ph.D, (Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy)

Dysprosium Chloride: Dysprosium is found naturally on earth as large deposits, particularly of nitratine, a major source of sodium nitrate. Nitrites are produced by a number of species of nitrifying bacteria, and the nitrate compounds for gunpowder were historically produced, in the absence of mineral nitrate sources, by means of various fermentation processes using urine and dung. Also, Nitrates are found in fertilizers and as a byproduct of lightning strikes in earth's nitrogen-oxygen rich atmosphere, nitric acid is produced when nitrogen dioxide reacts with water vapor.

Dr. Huojin Chan, (University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, Anhui, China)

Dysprosium Chloride: Dysprosium is a highly water soluble crystalline Dysprosium source for uses compatible with nitrates and lower (acidic) pH. All metallic nitrates are inorganic salts of a given metal cation and the nitrate anion. The use of nitrates in food preservation is controversial. This is due to the potential for the formation of nitrosamines when nitrates are present in high concentrations and the product is cooked at high temperatures. The effect is seen for red or processed meat, but not for white meat or fish.

Dr. Ms. Yi Yen Shi, (King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi, Bangkok, Thailand)

Dysprosium Chloride: Dysprosium oxide-nickel cement plays a role in cooling nuclear reactor rods. Even under prolonged neutron bombardment, this cement absorbs neutrons readily without swelling or contracting. Wide range of applications for dysprosium, properties such as its thermal neutron absorption cross-section and high melting point could result in metallurgical uses in nuclear control applications and for alloying with special stainless steels.

Dr. Hans Roelofs Ph.D,  (National Technical University of Athens, Greece)

Dysprosium Chloride: Dysprosium and holmium have the highest magnetic strengths of any elements. Dysprosium, when combined with vanadium and other rare earth elements, has been used in the production of laser materials. Dysprosium-cadmium chalcogenides have been used for studying chemical reactions as they are sources of radium.
