Selenium Powder

Selenium powder is black amorphous particle, which is a kind of nonmetal. After heating, it cool to glassy form. Its monoclinic crystal is red, however hexagonal crystal is grey. It is insoluble in water, hydrochloric acid and dilute sulphuric acid, but soluble in nitric acid, carbon disulfide, benzene and quinoline. High purity selenium and selenium nano particles are both available. Selenium granules are available too.

Pure selenium metal is mainly for selenium dioxide production, which is catalyst for electrolytic manganese smelting. Selenium element is also raw material for selenium sulfide.

High purity selenium metal is raw material for production of zinc selenide compounds, powder of xerography and other metal selenium compounds.  It is for epitaxial diffusion process of semiconductor productions.  It apply to selenium rectifier, phototube, photocell, radio communications copy and photograph.

Selenium nano powder is an kind of analytical reagent too. It can as dehydrogenating agent of aromatic compounds.
