Telluride and telluride compounds

Tellurides have no large scale applications. Cadmium telluride has attractive photovoltaic properties. Both bismuth telluride and lead telluride are exceptional thermoelectric materials. Some of these thermoelectric materials have been commercialized.

Tellurides, are compounds derived from the telluride anion, Te2-. As tellurium is a member of group 16 on the periodic table, it is considered a chalcogen, and telluride compounds belong to a class of compounds known as chalcogenides.

Telluride and telluride compounds

Alkali metal and alkaline earth chalcogenides are typically colorless, water-soluble compounds used primarily as reagents in chemical synthesis. In contrast, transition metal chalcogenides exhibit a more covalent bond character and useful electronic and optical properties, and many are brightly colored.
