Gadolinium Ingot

MATERIAL OVERVIEW

Characteristics: Lustrous metal. Reacts slowly in water; soluble in dilute acid; insoluble in water. Exhibits a high degree of magnetism, especially at lower temperatures. Salts are colorless. Gadolinium also has the highest neutron absorption cross-section of any known element. Gd also has superconductive properties. Combustible, burns in air to form the oxide.
