Gadolinium is a member of the lanthanide group of elements, and is obtained from the same sources as europium. It is a silvery white metal which is ductile and malleable. It is stable in a dry atmosphere but forms an oxide coating when exposed to moist air. It reacts slowly with water and is soluble in acids. Gadolinium has limited uses as a pure metal, but when alloyed with chromium, iron or similar metals, the resulting alloys have improved workability and corrosion resistance. Due to its magnetic properties, gadolinium is used in the manufacture of magnets, recording heads and electrical components.

what's Gadolinium (Gd) Nanoparticles?

Gadolinium (Gd) Nanoparticles, nanodots or nanopowder are black spherical high surface area particles. Nano Gadolinium Particles are also available in passivated and Ultra high purity and high purity and coated and dispersed forms. They are also available as a nanofluid through the AE Nanofluid production group. Nanofluids are generally defined as suspended nanoparticles in solution either using surfactant or surface charge technology.

Nanofluid dispersion and coating selection technical guidance is also available. Other nanostructures include nanorods, nanowhiskers, nanohorns, nanopyramids and other nanocomposites. Surface functionalized nanoparticles allow for the particles to be preferentially adsorbed at the surface interface using chemically bound polymers.

What is Gadolinium?

Gadolinium is a silvery-white, chemical element which is a rare-earth metal. Gadolinium has exceptionally high absorption of neutrons and therefore is used for shielding in neutron radiography and in nuclear reactors. Most of the world's gadolinium is found in various minerals, which are processed to extract usable elements; this element is extremely rare in a pure form because of its reactivity and vulnerability to corrosion. It has a number of industrial uses which ensure that there is a fairly steady demand for gadolinium. Consumers rarely interact directly with gadolinium, although they may own or use products which integrate this element.

rare earth oxide Gadolinium(Gd2O3)
Gadolinium is utilized for both its high magnetic moment (7.94uB) and in phosphors and scintillated material. When mixed with EDTA dopants, it is used as an injectable contrast agent for patients undergoing magnetic resonance imaging. With its high magnetic moment, gadolinium can reduce relaxation times and thereby enhance signal intensity.

The extra stable half-full 4f electron shell with no low lying energy levels creates applications as an inert phosphor host. Gadolinium can therefore act as hosts for x-ray cassettes and in scintillated materials for computer tomography.
