      Cadmium sulfide (CdS) and cadmium telluride (CdTe) are two of the II–VI compounds that have played a diverse role in investigating and seeking to use phenomena involving the interaction of light with semiconductors. They have been investigated both as single crystal materials, and as thin-film materials prepared by a relatively large number. The vibrant pigment ‘cadmium yellow’ takes all its coloration from cadmium sulfide, while redder variants have added selenium compounds. These colours are usually also long-lasting, which was one of the reasons for the rapid uptake of cadmium sulfide, as the earlier colours in the yellow to red range tended to be unstable.

      warning under the statute: Cadmium sulfide California prop. This product contains the following ingredients for which the State of California has found to cause cancer which would require a warning under the statute: Cadmium sulfide Pennsylvania RTK: Cadmium sulfide.   Zinc cadmium sulfide is used as a fluorescent tracer, a way to monitor dispersion of radioactive and chemical weapon fallout. According to research by St. Louis sociology professor Lisa Martino-Taylor in her recently published book “Behind the Fog”, Canada willingly participated in what they believed a test of “chemical fog to protect.

During the s and s, the U.S. Army conducted atmospheric dispersion tests in many American cities using fluorescent particles of zinc cadmium sulfide (ZnCdS) to develop and verify meteorological models to estimate the dispersal of aerosols.

Upon learning of the tests, many citizens and some public health officials in the affected cities raised concerns about the health. Operation LAC (Large Area Coverage) was a U.S. Army Chemical Corps operation which dispersed microscopic zinc cadmium sulfide (ZnCdS) particles over much of the United States and Canada in order to test dispersal patterns and the geographic range of chemical or biological weapons.
