156Gd Information

Gadolinium is a soft silvery metallic element belonging to the lanthanoids. It has 36 isotopes. Six natural stable isotopes of gadolinium are known in addition to one natural radioactive isotope. Gd-155 and Gd-157 and the best neutron absorbers of all elements. Gadolinium compounds are used in electronics. Gadolinium was discovered by J.C.G Marignac in 1880.

Gadolinium is used in steel alloying agents and the manufacture of electronic components.
