Product Details

Product Name

Thulium Fluoride

Product Description

Thulium fluoride is a chemical substance with a molecular formula of TmF3, a Light Green Powder, that is insoluble in water and soluble in acid. It is usually prepared by reacting Thulium Carbonate and hydrofluoric acid to prepare a solution and then dehydrating at a high temperature. 

Product Application

Thulium Fluoride has specialized uses in ceramics, glass, phosphors, lasers, also is the important dopant for fibre amplifiers and as raw materials for making Thulium Metal and alloys. Thulium Fluoride is a water insoluble Thulium source for use in oxygen-sensitive applications, such as metal production. Fluoride compounds have diverse applications in current technologies and science, from oil refining and etching to synthetic organic chemistry and the manufacture of pharmaceuticals.
