samarium chloride hexahydrate is the hydrate of the rare earth salt samarium (SmCl3). It is a white, crystalline solid that is soluble in water and alcohol. It is used as a precursor for the preparation of samarium metal, which finds use in magnets. It is combined with sodium chloride to get a low melting point eutectic mixture that is easily melted and electrolysed to give the free metal. It is also used in the synthesis of other samarium salts and organometallic compounds, such as bis(pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)alkylsamarium(III) complexes, which are used as catalysts for hydrogenation and hydrosilylation of alkenes.
Scientific research applications for samarium chloride hexahydrate include NMR spectroscopy, chromatography and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). It is also used in the synthesis of novel organosamarium compounds, which may have potential uses in medicine and materials science.
Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate is available in a number of standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec; ACS, Reagent and Pharmaceutical Grade; Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade; USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia). Specialty grades, including ultra high purity and nanopowder forms, are available upon request.
samarium chloride hexahydrate has many advantages for lab experiments, such as its ease of synthesis and solubility in a wide range of solvents. It also has a very low toxicity and is safe to handle with little risk of irritation when handled properly. However, it does have a few limitations for use in the lab, including its instability and the possibility of oxidation by air.
