General description

Europium (II) chloride is awhite to pale pink solid with orthorhombic crystal structure. It is a stablematerial that is hygroscopic in nature. It can be prepared simply by reducingEuropium (III) chloride with hydrogen gas at high temperatures. It has atunable luminescence.

application

Europium(II) chloride can be used as:
  • A dopant to prepare phosphor materials for energy-efficient solid-state lighting.
  • A pressure-sensor material.
  • A suitable precursor for the synthesis of Europium(ii) compounds coordination polymers with 2,2′-bipyrimidine-mediated ferromagnetic interactions.

The prevailing strategies for heat and electric-power production that rely on fossil and fission fuels are having a negative impact on the environment and on our living conditions.

The rare earth elements impact nearly everyone in the world. All of the people living in advanced technological countries and almost all those living in third world countries utilize the rare earths in their everyday living—the car that one drives (gasoline is refined from oil using rare earth catalysts and catalytic converters reduce the polluting emissions from the automotive exhaust), watching the news on TV (the red and green colors in TV screens), the telephones and computers we use to communicate (the permanent magnets in speakers and disc drives), just to name a few examples.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
