Russian Scientists Discover New Rare Earth Compounds

‘Paper’ made of yttrium lactate as a basis for creating new test systems
Modern chemistry makes it possible to obtain almost countless new compounds, and the endless combinations of building blocks from which they can be ‘assembled’ make this task both interesting and engrossing. Rare earth elements can imbue substances with unique properties (primarily luminescence and magnetism) and their biological activity is also of interest to scientists. As the chemistry of rare earth elements has been an object of study for many decades, the discovery of previously unknown compounds seems an impossible task. But it turns out there’s a lot more to discover!
