Recovery, recrystallization, hardness, and x-ray studies were made on a commercially produced lanthanum metal„ Arc melted lanthanum was cold worked and vacuum annealed to provide specimens for testing. Lanthanum of this purity was found to work harden rapidly and therefore fail with relatively low amounts of cold work. Definite recrystallization phenomena were not determined although recrystallization is postulated to start in the 40QOC region, with recovery starting at approximately 175° to 250°C.
