Expert Reviews

Dr. Baron Augustin, Ph.D (TUM), (Technical University of Munich, Germany)

Yttrium Acetate Tetrahydrate is a moderately water soluble crystalline Yttrium source that decomposes to Yttrium oxide on heating. It is generally immediately available in most volumes. All metallic acetates are inorganic salts containing a metal cation and the acetate anion, a univalent (-1 charge) polyatomic ion composed of two carbon atoms ionically bound to three hydrogen and two oxygen atoms  for a total formula weight of 59.05.

Dr. Darren Chandler, Ph.D, (Manchester Metropolitan University, U.K)

Yttrium Acetate Tetrahydrate: Acetates are excellent precursors for production of Ultra high purity compounds, catalysts, and Nanoscale materials. Yttrium has the highest thermo-dynamic affinity for oxygen, useful in ceramics for crucibles for molten reactive metals, in florescent phosphors, computer displays and automotive fuel sensors.

Yttria stabilized zirconia is used in high temperature applications and as an electrolyte in fuel cells. Yttrium is often used as an additive in alloys. It increases the strength of aluminium and magnesium alloys. It is also used in the making of microwave filters for radar and has been used as a catalyst in ethene polymerisation.

Yttrium-aluminium garnet (YAG) is used in lasers that can cut through metals. It is also used in white LED lights. Yttrium oxide is added to the glass used to make camera lenses to make them heat and shock resistant. It is also used to make superconductors. Yttrium oxysulfide used to be widely used to produce red phosphors for old-style colour television tubes.The radioactive isotope yttrium-90 has medical uses. It can be used to treat some cancers, such as liver cancer.
