SECTION 10: Stability and reactivity



Reacts with acids. This produces flammable/explosive gas (hydrogen – see ICSC 0001). The dust reacts with oxidants, hydrogen azide, zinc, selenium and tellurium. This generates fire and explosion hazard.


Chemical stability

Slowly oxidized by moist air to form cadmium oxide.


Possibility of hazardous reactions

Powdered cadmium is flammable.Dust explosion possible if in powder or granular form, mixed with air.A violent explosion occurred 30 minutes after placement of a CADMIUM rod into hydrazoic acid [Mellor 8 Supp. 2:50 1967]. Fused ammonium nitrate with powdered metal often produces a violent explosive reaction. Reactivity similar to zinc. May be incompatible with oxidants.


Conditions to avoid

no data available


Incompatible materials

The dust ignites spontaneously in air and is flammable and explosive when exposed to heat, flame, or by chemical reaction with oxidizing agents, metals, ammonia, zinc, selenium, and tellurium.


Hazardous decomposition products

When heated to a high temperature it emits toxic fumes of cadmium.

NTP: Known to be a human carcinogen. EPA: Probable human carcinogen. IARC: Carcinogenic to humans

Reproductive toxicity

Limited evidence exists for an association between inhalation exposure and a reduction in sperm number and viability in humans. Human developmental studies on cadmium are limited, although there is some evidence to suggest that maternal cadmium exposure may result in decreased birthweights. Animal studies provide evidence that cadmium has developmental effects, such as low fetal weight, skeletal malformations, interference with fetal metabolism, and impaired neurological development, via inhalation and oral exposure. Limited animal data are available, although some reproductive effects, such as decreased reproduction and testicular damage, have been noted following oral exposures.

STOT-single exposure

The fume is irritating to the respiratory tract. Inhalation of fumes may cause lung oedema. See Notes. Inhalation of fumes may cause metal fume fever. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.

STOT-repeated exposure

Repeated or prolonged inhalation of dust particles may cause effects on the lungs. The substance may have effects on the kidneys. This may result in kidney impairment. This substance is carcinogenic to humans.

Aspiration hazard

A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered.

Other Information

Reacts violently with fire extinguishing agents such as water, foam, carbon dioxide and halons.Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.Do NOT take working clothes home.Cadmium also exists in a pyrophoric form (EC No. 048-011-00-X), which bears the additional EU labelling symbol F, R phrase 17, and S phrases 7/8 and 43.UN numbers and packing group will vary according to the physical form of the substance.

Colloidal cadmium
Cadmium, elemental
Kadmium [German]

This soft, silvery-white metal is chemically similar to the two other stable metals in group 12, zinc and mercury.
Cadmium occurs as a minor component in most zinc ores and is a byproduct of zinc production.
Cadmium was used for a long time as a corrosion-resistant plating on steel, and cadmium compounds are used as red, orange and yellow pigments, to color glass, and to stabilize plastic.
It is similar in many respects to zinc but forms complex compounds. Unlike most other metals, cadmium is resistant to corrosion and is used as a protective plate on other metals. As a bulk metal, cadmium is insoluble in water and is not flammable; however, in its powdered form it may burn and release toxic fumes.
