Chemical properties of Thulium






Pure thulia was isolated by James in 1911. A few compounds of thulium have been described. They are pale green in the solid state and in solution. As the amount of erbium salt present as impurity increases from a trace upwards, the colour of the aqueous solution becomes successively yellowish-green, yellow, colourless, and pink.
