Yttrium is a silvery-metallic transition metal, similar to the lanthanides. It is found in most rare-earth minerals.
The most important use of yttrium is in making phosphors. Yttrium oxide (Y2O3) and yttrium orthovanadate (YVO4) are both combined with europium to produce the red phosphor used in televisions set cathode ray tube (CRT) displays and in LEDs. Yttrium is also used as an additive in alloys to increases the strength of aluminum and magnesium alloys.
Yttrium has no known biological role, and exposure to yttrium compounds can cause lung disease in humans.
