Crystalline tellurium is a silver-white glossy semi-metal. It acts as a companion of sulphur and is extracted from sulphides. Tellurium puzzles with a contradiction: On the one hand, it is quite soft and, on the other hand, mechanically stressed it brittles easily. Therefore, it can be perfectly processed into powder. In appearance, it resembles tin and antimony. Chemically, on the other hand, it is a close relative of selenium.
Tellurium is multi-talented. As part of metal alloys, it makes these less susceptible to corrosion. As cadmium telluride, it is used in photovoltaics (thin-film solar cells). Tellurium is also found in coatings for high-sea cables, compact discs and special glasses for fiber optic conductors. Tellurium is also used in the vulcanisation of rubber. These diverse areas of application make tellurium indispensable for many industries.
Thanks to its diversity, tellurium remains exciting for various industries in the long run.
