Cesium hydroxide is used in the preparation of porous cesium titanosilicates, which are potential ion-exchange materials utilized for radioactive wastes cleaning purpose. It is also involved in the preparation of other cesium salts. Further, it is used as an electrolyte in alkaline batteries and as a catalyst in organic synthesis. In addition to this, it is used in color photography.
