Cerium Acetate (Cerium(III) Acetate Hydrate) is a moderately water soluble crystalline Cerium source that decomposes to Cerium oxide on heating. It is generally immediately available in most volumes.
Appearance:White powder or crystals
Solubility in H2O:3.5g/L
Cerium(III) acetate hydrate is used in thin film buffer layers suitable for high κ dielectrics by sol-gel route. And it is also used as a catalyst for auto-oxidation of cresols.
