Applications

The main application of cadmium sulfide is as a pigment. Cadmium sulfide is also used in the production of solar cells. Used as light dependent resistors/photo resistors for light sensors. Used in MOCVD, sputtering and electrochemical deposition. In screen printing, it is used as a slurry containing dispersed cadmium sulfide. It is also used in dandruff shampoos.

Notes

It is nonflammable. It reacts violently with oxidizing agents. When heated to decomposition it emits fumes of cadmium and sulfur oxides.
