Lanthanum is the second most abundant rare earth. It is most widely used in catalysts for fluid catalytic cracking of crude oil. It is also used heavily in metallurgical applications – notably combined with nickel in nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries used in electric vehicles. Lanthanum is also added to improve the performance of some superalloys.
