Physical propertiesEdit

Ytterbium(III) nitrate forms colorless hygroscopic crystals.

Soluble in water and ethanol.

Forms crystalline hydrates of the composition  , where n = 4, 5, 6.[5]

Chemical propertiesEdit

The hydrated ytterbium nitrate thermally decomposes to form YbONO3 and decomposes to ytterbium oxide upon further heating.

ApplicationEdit

Ytterbium(III) nitrate hydrate is used for nanoscale coatings of carbon composites.[6]

Also used to obtain metallic ytterbium and as a chemical reagent.

Used as a component for the production of ceramics and glass.
