Metal ytterbium block is a silver white soft metal with luster and easy oxidation. It slowly corrodes in the air and is soluble in dilute acids and liquid ammonia. It can slowly react with water, and divalent salts are green, soluble in water, and react with water to slowly release hydrogen gas; Trivalent salt is colorless. The oxide is white in color. Silver white metal with ductility, rich in luster.
Metallic ytterbium is silver gray, ductile, and has a soft texture. At room temperature, ytterbium can be slowly oxidized by air and water. Similar to samarium and europium, ytterbium belongs to the variable valence rare earth, and can also be in a positive divalent state in addition to being usually trivalent. Due to this variable valence characteristic, the preparation of metallic ytterbium should not be carried out by electrolysis, but by reduction distillation method for preparation and purification. Usually, lanthanum metal is used as a reducing agent for reduction distillation, utilizing the difference between the high vapor pressure of ytterbium metal and the low vapor pressure of lanthanum metal. Alternatively, thulium, ytterbium, and lutetium concentrates can be used as raw materials, and metal lanthanum can be used as a reducing agent. Under high temperature vacuum conditions of>1100 ℃ and<0.133Pa, metal ytterbium can be directly extracted by reduction distillation. Like samarium and europium, ytterbium can also be separated and purified through wet reduction. Usually, thulium, ytterbium, and lutetium concentrates are used as raw materials. After dissolution, ytterbium is reduced to a divalent state, causing significant differences in properties, and then separated from other trivalent rare earths. The production of high-purity ytterbium oxide is usually carried out by extraction chromatography or ion exchange method.
