Samarium Powder

Samarium has no biological role, but it has been observed to stimulate the metabolism. Soluble salts of samarium are mildly toxic when ingested and are associated with health risks as exposure to samarium causes irritation to the skin and eyes.

Samarium is a silvery white metal belonging to the lanthanide group of the periodic table. It is relatively stable at room temperature in dry air, but ignites when heated above 150 ° C and forms an oxide coating in humid air. Like europium, samarium has a relatively stable oxidation state.

Samarium is used as a catalyst in some organic reactions: Samarium iodide (SmI2) is used by organic chemists to create synthetic versions of natural products. Samarium oxide is used to make special infrared absorbing glasses and electrode cores for carbon arc lamps and as a catalyst for the dehydration and dehydrogenation of ethanol. Its combination with cobalt (SmCo5) is used to create a new material for permanent magnets.
