Neodymium, one of the rare earth metals, is relatively reactive
in air. It forms a signature purple oxide within a few hours. ACI
can supply pure neodymium targets and evaporation
pieces packed in either a dessicant or in mineral oil. Many neodimium
alloys are less reactive. See neodymium in our
"materials made" page for an idea of our capabilities--also try
searching alphabetically on each of the element symbols in
the material you are looking for.
The MSDS for neodymium can be found here.
