About Cadmium (Cd)

Symbol: Cd
Atomic number: 48
Atomic weight: 112.414
Element category: transition metal, alternatively considered a post-transition metal
Cadmium is a soft, malleable, bluish white metal, chemically similar to zinc and mercury. It is soft enough ro be cut with a knife and resistant to corrosion.
Most cadmium is used in nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries. Other uses for cadmium are in alloys, coatings, solar cells, plastic stabilizers and pigments.
Cadmium forms various compounds. For example, cadmium sulfide (CdS) is used as a photoconductive surface coating for photocopier drums and as a yellow pigment. Cadmium selenide (CdSe) can be used as red pigment, commonly called cadmium red.
