Lutetium(III) oxide serves as a catalyst in a variety of reactions such as polymerization, hydrogenation and alkylation reactions. It is also used in ceramics and glass. In the production of laser crystals, lutetium(III) oxide finds application as an important starting material. Its luminescent properties, a field of interest for researchers and may find potential application in biological fields.
