Selenium and tellurium behave similarly, but form crystalline solid fluorides.
It is found associated likewise with selenium and tellurium.
They may both be obtained by the direct action of chlorine on tellurium.
Palladium, rhodium and tellurium are also met with as alloys of gold.
tellurium dissolves in cold concentrated sulphuric acid, to which it imparts a rich purple-red colour.
Billy stood it until noon, then she caught up tellurium and rode off after the dog.
The cross in tellurium is identical with that in cadmium, except that the centre is seven-atomed instead of four-atomed.
His researches into the phenomena exhibited by tellurium, when forming a part of the Voltaic circuit, are highly interesting.
In this case the iron pins mark the paper tape, but the tellurium pins make no mark.
When taken internally, even in very minute quantities, tellurium imparts to the breath an offensively powerful odour of garlic.
tellurium tel·lu·ri·um (tě-lur'ē-əm)
A brittle metallic element usually found in combination with gold and other metals, used to alloy stainless steel and lead, and, as bismuth telluride, in thermoelectric devices. Atomic number 52; atomic weight 127.60; melting point 449.5°C; boiling point 988°C; specific gravity 6.24; valence 2, 4, 6.
A metalloid element that occurs as either a brittle, shiny, silvery-white crystal or a gray or brown powder. Small amounts of tellurium are used to improve the alloys of various metals. Atomic number 52; atomic weight 127.60; melting point 449.5°C; boiling point 989.8°C; specific gravity 6.24; valence 2, 4, 6. See Periodic Table.
