Oxidation Number of Lanthanum

Lanthanum is a soft, silvery-white metallic chemical element with symbol La and atomic number 57. Though it is a metal, it tarnishes rapidly when exposed to air and is soft enough to be cut with a knife. Lanthanum exhibits two oxidation states, +3 and +2, out of which +3 being the stable one. There are 38 known radioisotopes of Lanthanum(La) categorized ranging from 117La to 155La, with the most stable being 139La. Density of Lanthanum is about 6.162 g/cm3. Lanthanum is used as ignition element in lighters. Lanthanum carbonate has been approved as a medicine for treating renal failure. Oxides of Lanthanum include Lanthanum oxide(La2O3).
