Chemical and physical properties of cerium sulphate

Cerium (IV) sulphate – also knwon as ceric sulphate or cerium (4 ) disulphate – it’s an inorganic compound with the formula Ce(SO4)2 (sometimes written as CeO8S2). It occurs naturally in several hydrated forms, ranging from Ce(SO4)2.4H2O to Ce(SO4)2.12H2O. These can be converted to anyhydrous form after heating to 200 degree Celsius.

This compound forms characteristically bright yellow/orange crystals, mildly soluble in acidic solutions, such as sulphuric acid. It’s also partially soluble in small amounts of water, but it hydrolyses in large volumes. If left in solution, it slowly decomposes to cerium oxide CeO2.


Cerium sulphate can be involved in various types of reactions, particularly as a strong oxidiser. This property is particularly evident under acidic conditions. For example, in the presence of hydrochloric acid, it produces chlorine and it’s converted to a cerous compound (ce3 ). In this case, the solution becomes colourless. For this reason, cerium sulphate is commonly used in analytical chemistry for redox titrations.

Environmental toxicity

This compound can be potentially dangerous to aquatic life, as it may dramatically change water pH. It should not be allowed to enter natural water sources, soil or driking water. Needs to be disposed of following appropriate legislation.
