Samarium(III) Hydroxide Hydrate is a moderately water soluble crystalline Samarium source that decomposes to Samarium oxide on heating. It is generally immediately available in most volumes. Hydroxide Hydrates are excellent precursors for production of ultra high purity compounds and certain catalyst and nanoscale (nanoparticles and nanopowders) materials.
