Cerium(III) Oxalate

Cerium(III) Oxalate (Cerous Oxalate) is the inorganic cerium salt of oxalic acid, which is highly insoluble in water and converts to the oxide when heated (calcined). It is a white crystalline solid with the chemical formula of Ce2(C2O4)3. It could be obtained by the reaction of oxalic acid with cerium(III) chloride.

What is Cerium(III) Oxalate used for?

Cerium(III) Oxalate is used as an antiemetic. It is also considered to be the most efficient glass polishing agent for precision optical polishing. The numerous commercial applications for cerium include metallurgy, glass and glass polishing, ceramics, catalysts, and in phosphors. In steel manufacturing it is used to remove free oxygen and sulfur by forming stable oxysulfides and by tying up undesirable trace elements, such as lead and antimony.
