Brief Description of Europium Oxide Powder Eu2O3
Europium(III) oxide (Eu2O3), is a chemical compound of europium and oxygen.
Europium Oxide powder is a highly insoluble thermally stable Europium source suitable for glass, optic and ceramic applications.
Europium fluorescence is used in the anti-counterfeiting phosphors in Euro banknotes.
It may be formed by ignition of europium metal.
It can react with acids to form the corresponding europium(III) salts.
