Europium metal has unique luminescent properties. With an energetically effective fluorescence, Europium provides not only the required red, but also blue. The use of europium blue phosphate has found application in color television, computer screens and fluorescent lamps. The luminescent properties of europium are used in medicine and surgery.
Europium is silvery-white soft metal, easily oxidized in air.
The material is supplied in a closed container in which europium ingot is sealed.
Melting point: 826 ° C;
Boiling point: 1529 ° C;
Density: 5.24 g / cm3
Europium is a chemical element with the symbol Eu and atomic number 63. It is the most reactive lanthanide by far, having to be stored under an inert fluid to protect it from atmospheric oxygen or moisture. Also the softest lanthanide, as it can be dented with a finger nail and easily cut with a knife. When oxidation is removed a shiny-white metal is visible. Europium was isolated in 1901 and is named after the continent of Europe.
Europium is a ductile metal with a hardness similar to that of lead. It crystallizes in a body-centered cubic lattice. Some properties of europium are strongly influenced by its half-filled electron shell. Europium has the second lowest melting point and the lowest density of all lanthanides.
