Dysprosium Trifluoromethanesulfonate is one of numerous organo-metallic compounds (also known as metalorganic, organo-inorganic and Organo-Metallic Packaging, Lab Quantitymetallo-organic compounds) sold by American Elements under the tradename AE Organo-Metallics™ for uses requiring non-aqueous solubility such as recent solar energy and water treatment applications. Similar results can sometimes also be achieved with Nanoparticles and by thin film deposition. Note American Elements additionally supplies many materials as solutions. Dysprosium Trifluoromethanesulfonate is generally immediately available in most volumes. High purity, submicron and nanopowder forms may be considered. Additional technical, research and safety information is available.

Related Products & Element Information

See more Dysprosium products. Dysprosium (atomic symbol: Dy, atomic number: 66) is a Block F, Group 3, Period 6 element with an atomic radius of 162.5. Dysprosium Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of dysprosium's shells is [2, 8, 18, 28, 8, 2] and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f10 6s2. The dysprosium atom has an atomic radius of 178 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 229 pm. Dysprosium was first discovered by Paul Emile Lecoq de Boisbaudran in 1886.In its elemental form, dysprosium has a silvery-white appearance. Elemental Dysprosium PictureIt is a member of the lanthanide or rare earth series of elements and, along with holmium, has the highest magnetic strength of all other elements on the periodic table, especially at low temperatures. Dysprosium is found in various minerals including bastnäsite, blomstrandine, euxenite, fergusonite, gadolinite, monazite, polycrase and xenotime. It is not found in nature as a free element. The element name originates from the Greek word dysprositos, meaning hard to get at.

See more Sulfur products. Sulfur (or Sulphur) (atomic symbol: S, atomic number: 16) is a Block P, Group 16, Period 3 element with an atomic radius of 32.066. Sulfur Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Sulfur's shells is 2, 8, 6 and its electron configuration is [Ne] 3s2 3p4. In its elemental form, sulfur has a light yellow appearance. The sulfur atom has a covalent radius of 105 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 180 pm. In nature, sulfur can be found in hot springs, meteorites, volcanoes, and as galena, gypsum, and epsom salts. Sulfur has been known since ancient times but was not accepted as an element until 1777, when Antoine Lavoisier helped to convince the scientific community that it was an element and not a compound.
