Properties

Cadmium is a silver-white lustrous metal with a melting point of 320.9°C, a boiling point of 765°C and a density of 8650 kg/m3. Good toughness and ductility.

Applications

  • High purity cadmium is used to grow CdTe, CdZnTe single crystals or to prepare compound CdTe.
  • High purity cadmium is a necessary raw material for preparing infrared detectors (MCT detectors - HgCdTe / CdZnTe).
  • High purity cadmium can be used to prepare cadmium telluride solar cells.
  • The alloy of silver, indium and cadmium can be used as the control rod of atomic reactor (neutron absorption).
  • Cadmium compounds can be used in the manufacture of (yellow) pigments, plastic stabilizers, phosphors, pesticides, fungicides, paints, etc.
  • It can be used for electroplating and preparation of rechargeable batteries.
