cerium cerium


  • (n) a ductile grey metallic element of the lanthanide series; used in lighter flints; the most abundant of the rare-earth group




  1. If cerium 144 can be used, the unit cost might be as low as $600 per battery.
  2. The stuff was faintly hot, containing the radioactive cerium and yttrium that are typical products of nuclear fission.
  3. For the final push they used highly magnetic saltsgadolinium sulphate octahydrate in California, cerium fluoride in Leyden.


  • Efficient production process for coveted nanocrystals

    A formation mechanism of nanocrystalline cerium dioxide (CeO2), a versatile nanomaterial, has been unveiled. This finding potentially simplifies and alleviates the existing synthetic processes of nanocrystalline CeO2 production.

  • Researcher Wendelin Stark says, "Intuitively, we presumed that practically 100 percent of the cerium oxide particles would remain trapped in the sewage sludge. After all, the particles should form clumps and sink to the bottom."
