Rare Earth Metals and Their Compounds
- Determination of Total Rare Earth Content
1 Scope
This Standard specifies the determination method of total rare earth content in the rare
earth metals and their compounds.
This Standard is applicable to the determination of the total rare earth content in rare
earth metals and their compounds. This Standard contains two methods: Method-1 is
oxalate gravimetric method, and Method-2 is EDTA titration method. Method-1 is
applicable to the determination of the total rare earth content in single and mixed rare
earth metals and their compounds; the determination range is shown in Table 1; it is
not applicable to the determination of the total rare earth content in single and mixed
rare earth metals and their compounds mainly based on erbium, thulium, ytterbium,
and lutetium or the individual content of thorium and lead is greater than 0.1%. Method-
2 is applicable to the determination of the total rare earth content in the single rare
earth metals and mixed rare earth metals and their compounds mainly based on heavy
rare earth holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium, and lutetium; the determination range
is shown in Table 2; it is not applicable to the determination of the total rare earth
content in the single rare earth with relative purity less than 99.5%, as well as in a
single rare earth metal and its compounds with other impurity elements greater than
0.5%; it is also not applicable to the determination of the total rare earth content in
materials with individual content of thorium, scandium, and zinc greater than 0.1%.

different compound is shown in Table 3. There are usually 3 ways:
a) Determine the total rare earth content by the original sample: directly weigh the
sample.

at 105°C for 1h; cool to room temperature in a desiccator; and weigh immediately.
c) Determine the total rare earth content after burning: the sample is burned in a
muffle furnace at 950°C for 1h; cool to room temperature in a desiccator; and
weigh immediately.

2.6 Calculation of analysis results
2.6.1 Calculation and expression of the total rare earth content in rare earth metal
testing materials
The total rare earth content is calculated by the mass fraction w (RE) of rare earth
metals (RE); and calculated as per Formula (1):
add 5mL of hydrochloric acid (3.2.5); dilute to the mark by water, and mix well.
3.2.13 Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt (EDTA) standard titration solution
(c≈0.01mol/L):
a) Preparation: take about 7.5g of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt
(3.2.13) in a 250mL beaker; add a small amount of water to dissolve; transfer the
solution to a 2L volumetric flask; dilute to the mark by water, and mix well.
b) Calibration: pipette 25.00mL of zinc standard solution (3.2.12) in a 250mL
triangular flask; add 50mL of water, 1 drop of methyl orange (3.2.9) or p-
nitrophenol (3.2.10) indicator. Use ammonia water (3.2.6) and hydrochloric acid
(3.2.5) to adjust the solution to just turn yellow; add 5mL of
hexamethylenetetramine buffer solution (3.2.11), 2 drops of xylenol orange
(3.2.8); use the EDTA standard titration solution (3.2.13) to titrate the solution till
it turns from red (when the acidity is adjusted by methyl orange) or purple (when
the acidity is adjusted by p-nitrophenol) just to yellow, which is the end point.
Calibrate 3 portions in parallel; and the range of the volume of the consumed
EDTA standard titration solution (3.2.13) shall not exceed 0.10 mL; take the
average value.
The concentration c of the EDTA standard titration solution is calculated in mol/L, which
is calculated as per Formula (3):
Where:
ρ – mass concentration of zinc standard solution, in g/L;
V5 –volume of the separately-pipetted zinc standard solution, in mL;
V6 – volume of EDTA standard titration solution consumed by titration of zinc, in mL;
M1 – molar mass of the zinc, in g/mol.
