Transcript of Lutetium

By: Lilly Butler Lutetium Discovered in 1907 by the Scientist Georges
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
Luster: Metallic
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
