The purpose of this study was to prepare and characterize of holmium-beta-cyclodextrin complex (Ho-β-CD) in order to increase the solubility and stability of Holmium. To achieve this goal, Ho-β-CD complex was prepared by evaporation method of holmium and beta cyclodextrin solutions in a proportion (1:1) and (1:3), respectively. Infrared (IR) and Raman spectroscopy, X-Ray Diffraction were performed to identify the complex. Morphology of the Ho, β-CD, and Ho-β-CD were studied using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM).
