Samarium anyone!?
« on: November 21, 2005, 03:01:54 AM »
whats with the lack of research into samarium?  I've never heard of a carbonyl compound of samarium (though a few may exist!) And I haven't seen anything about it in radical polymerization.  Samarium is unique among the lanthanides in its ability to support a 2+ oxidation state, though 3+ is the sink. and its relatively cheap!

Used it to make Mercury earlier this month.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

No, but I'm familiar with their nuclear chemists anyways.
