  • Cadmium is a lustrous, silver-white, ductile, very malleable metal.
  • Its surface has a bluish tinge and the metal is soft enough to be cut with a knife, but it tarnishes in air.
  • It is soluble in acids but not in alkalis. It is similar in many respects to zinc but it forms more complex compounds.
  • Making of nickel-cadmium batteries
  • Pigments, coatings and plating
  • Stabilizers in manufacture of plastics
  • Electroplating of steel
  • Production of nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) rechargeable batteries
