Transcript of Lutetium
from France, Mineralogist Carl Von Welsbach
from Austria, and the Chemist Charles James
from the U.S. Discovery Lutetium Georges Urbain defined a method of which ytterbium was separated into two new elements. Those elements were ytterbium (neoytterbium) and lutetium. Lutetium Symbol: Lu
Atomic number: 71
Atomic mass: 174.9660 Lutetium Color: Silvery White
Texture: Solid Metal
Hardness: 298 K Density: 9.841 Kg m -3
Phase of matter at room Temp: Solid
Malleability: Soft Metal
Ductility: Very Ductile Boiling Point: 3395 C
Melting Point: 1663 C Uses Today Lutetium is used
-to make catalysts which are used to break hydrocarbons
-Lutetium is also used in the medical field, it is used for cancer therapy because of its extensive half-life.
-Lutetium is also used in memory devices such as magnetic bubble memory, also known as domain which can be found in any computer.
-A Lutetium based compound Lutetium Oxyorthosilicate, or LSO is used in the Positron Emission Tomography, or PET which is a body scanner that does not penetrate the body, but gives a 3D view of its cellular motion. Fun Facts Lutetium is also used in deciphering the age of meteorites! It can also conduct electricity! Sources http://www.webelements.com/lutetium/uses.html
