Cadmium

Cadmium is a bluish-white metal closely related to zinc on one hand and to mercury on the other. It tarnishes superficially, and is fairly reactive chemically, one of its chief compounds, cadmium sulphide, being extensively employed in the paint industry as a golden-yellow pigment.
Cadmium metal is ductile, and can be rolled into sheets and drawn into wire. It has been used to some extent as a plating metal. Cadmium is also used in the making of fusible alloys and certain casting metals.
