Cerium Chloride Anhydrous

Breif introduction of Anhydrous CeCl3 Powder

Cerium Chloride Anhydrous (CeCl3), also known as cerous chloride or cerium trichloride, is a compound of cerium and chloride.

It is a white hygroscopic solid; it rapidly absorbs water on exposure to moist air to form a hydrate , which appears to be of variable composition, though the heptahydrate CeCl3·7H2O is known.

It is highly soluble in water , and (when anhydrous) it is soluble in ethanol and acetone.
