Applications: Cerium Octoate, excellent chemical stability, as the main drying agent, used for coating and ink driers, especially in curing printing ink, not yellow after baking, Cerium 2-Ethylhexanoate can instead of other metal ink driers. Cerium octoate can initiates UV degradation of polyolefines, it can be used as dispersing agent for coatings and paint, stabilizer for PVC, and used in various catalysts for oxidation, hydrogenation and polymerization and as an adhesion promoter, as the the precursor in preparation of inorganic nanoparticles in oil-in-water microemulsions, as displacement agent for shale gas extraction process.

Product features: The Toluene-based precursor solution was composed by mixing gadolinium (III) 2-ethylhexanoate and cerium (III) 2-ethylhexanoate to achieve the right stoichiometry. For the ceria/zirconia precursor, cerium(III) 2-ethylhexanoate and zirconium(IV) 2-ethylhexanoate were mixed to result in a metal molar ratio Ce/Zr of 1:1 and diluted with xylene to a total metal. Thin films of CeO2 were prepared by a photochemical method using thin amorphous films of cerium(III) 2-ethylhexanoate as the precursor.
