Samarium Chloride has specialized uses in glass, phosphors, lasers, and thermoelectric devices. Samarium Chloride is used for the preparation of Samarium metal, which has a variety of uses, notably in magnets. Anhydrous SmCl3 is mixed with Sodium Chloride or Calcium Chloride to give a low melting point eutectic mixture. Electrolysis of this molten salt solution gives the free metal. Samarium Chloride can also be used as a starting point for the preparation of other Samarium salts.
