Praseodym / Neodymium

The prices for praseodymium / neodymium metal was during the last days, in response to the declining demand of NdFeB producers, weakened. Some suppliers have prices for 99% pure praseodymium / neodymium to U.S. $ 60,00 for Kilogramm gesenkt, im Vergleich zu etwa US$ 62,00 pro Kilogramm in der letzten Woche.

China europium oxide prices are once again dropped and go with the weakening of demand from manufacturers of fluorescent powder amid the economic slowdown accompanied. 4N europium oxide prices have fallen to U.S. $ 634.00 / kg. A few days ago yet prices were spotted by U.S. $ 682.00 / kg.


The 4N terbium oxide prices are at U.S. $ 478.00 / kg. Towards the end of last month, they stood at U.S. $ 488.00 / kg. A number of manufacturers of fluorescent powder had reduced their consumption of rare earth oxides, da Prices 2011 are greatly increased.

The prices are for lanthanum metal with falling prices for lanthanum oxide and a relatively weak demand currently on the wane. Some providers offer U.S. $ 11.38 / KG for 99% pure lanthanum metal at.
