Cadmium Chloride

Cadmium chloride is a compound of cadmium and chlorine. It is used for the preparation of cadmium sulfide. In the laboratory, cadmium chloride can be used for the preparation of organocadmium compounds of the type R2Cd, where R is an aryl or a primary alkyl. It is also used for photocopying, dyeing and electroplating.

Cadmium Fluoroborate

Cadmium Fluoroborate acts as a weakly acidic inorganic salt, which is soluble in water. It is prepared from the reaction between an aqueous solution of fluoroboric acid and cadmium carbonate or cadmium oxide.Cadmium Fluoroborate primary uses are to prepare electroplating baths for high strength steels where normal cyanide baths cause problems of hydrogen embrittlement.

Cadmium Iodide

Cadmium iodide is a chemical compound of cadmium and iodine. It is used in lithography, photography, electroplating and the manufacturing of phosphors.

Cadmium Sulfide

Cadmium sulfide is an inorganic compound. It occurs in nature with two different crystal structures as the rare minerals greenockite and hawleyite, but is more prevalent as an impurity substituent in the similarly structured zinc ores sphalerite and wurtzite, which are the major economic sources of cadmium. As a compound that is easy to isolate and purify, it is the principal source of cadmium for all commercial applications. It is mainly used as a pigment. Cadmium sulfide and cadmium selenide are used in manufacturing of photoresistors sensitive to visible and near infrared light. In thin-film form, cadmium sulfide can be combined with other layers for use in certain types of solar cells. It was also one of the first semiconductor materials to be used for thin-film transistors (TFTs). However interest in compound semiconductors for TFTs largely waned after the emergence of amorphous silicon technology in the late 1970s. It is also used as chemical raw material for glass and ceramic industry.

Caesium

Caesium is a soft, silvery white-gray metal that occurs in nature as cesium-133. The natural source yielding the greatest quantity of cesium is the rare mineral pollucite. Cesium is used in industry as a catalyst promoter, boosting the performance of other metal oxides in the capacity and for the hydrogenation of organic compounds.The radioactive isotope caesium-137 has a half-life of about 30 years and is used in medical applications, industrial gauges, and hydrology.

Caesium Hydroxide

Caesium hydroxide is a chemical compound consisting of an atom of caesium and a hydroxide group. It is a powerful base. It is an anisotropic etchant of silicon, exposing octahedral planes. This technique can form pyramids and regularly shaped etch pits for uses such as Microelectromechanical systems. It is known to have a higher selectivity to etch highly p-doped silicon than the more commonly used potassium hydroxide. It is used as electrolyte in alkaline batteries at subzero temperatures, color photography and as a catalyst in organic synthesis.

Calcite

The carbonate mineral calcite is a calcium carbonate corresponding to the formula CaCO3 and is one of the most widely distributed minerals on the Earth's surface. Calcite crystals are hexagonal-rhombohedral, though actual calcite rhombohedrons are rare as natural crystals. It is used as chemical raw material for glass and ceramic industry.

Calcium

Calcium is a alkaline earth metal, and is the fifth most abundant element by mass in the Earth's crust. It is essential for living organisms, particularly in cell physiology, where movement of the calcium ion Ca2+ into and out of the cytoplasm functions as a signal for many cellular processes. As a major material used in mineralization of bones and shells, calcium is the most abundant metal by mass in many animals. It is uesd as a reducing agent in the extraction of other metals, such as uranium, zirconium, and thorium, as a deoxidizer, desulfurizer, or decarbonizer for various ferrous and nonferrous alloys, and as an alloying agent used in the production of aluminium, beryllium, copper, lead, and magnesium alloys. It is also used in the making of cements and mortars to be used in construction and in the making of cheese, where calcium ions influence the activity of rennin in bringing about the coagulation of milk.
