Neodymium brand, chemical structure
Neodymium — a rare earth element of the lanthanides group. The chemical symbol Nd. It is a silvery-white metal with a yellowish tinge. In the air. easily oxidized. Opened in 1885, the Austrian chemist Carl Auer von welsbach managed to separate rare earth metal Didim, previously considered a single element, praseodymium and neodymium. The word neodymium in Greek means «new twin.» Industrially, this metal is getting calcium thermal recovery, or by electrolysis of molten anhydrous halide of praseodymium and neodymium. The main suppliers of this metal in Europe are: China, USA, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and the Scandinavian countries.

This is one of the most popular lanthanides for making powerful permanent magnets and infrared lasers with a wavelength of about 1,067 microns. It is necessary for smelting colored purple glass. Fluoride NdF3 is used in fiber optics for the production of high quality fiberglass. Oxide Nd2 O3 — insulator — it has the minimum expansion coefficient. This metal significantly hardens thermoelectric materials based on tellurides, selenides of antimony and bismuth, and also increases their thermo-EMF. There are developments that doping with neodymium materials based on bismuth-tellurium-cesium as well has a beneficial effect on their properties. Neodymium is used in agriculture. The treated seeds have a higher germination rate and yield. This metal is indispensable for the alloying of structural steels and alloys. It increases the strength of pure titanium of 1.5. During the chemical interaction with the aluminum compounds are formed, which are double the tensile strength of the alloy and increase its hardness. Alloys aluminum-neodymium-titanium produced these types of hire, as a circle, wire, sheet, strip,
