Applications

This compound named Samarium(III) chloride has few practical applications but is used in laboratories for research on new compounds of samarium. Samarium(III) chloride is used for the preparation of samarium metal, which has a variety of uses, notably in magnets. Anhydrous SmCl3 is mixed with sodium chloride or calcium chloride to give a low melting point eutectic mixture. Electrolysis of this molten salt solution gives the free metal. Samarium(III) chloride can also be used as a starting point for the preparation of other samarium salts. The anhydrous chloride is used to prepare organometallic compounds of samarium, such as bis(pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)alkylsamarium(III) complexes.

Notes

Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Keep away from strong oxidizing agents. Hygroscopic.
