Cadmium White

Provided the metal be freed from iron, which we have commonly found to

be more or less present, a white of considerable beauty may be produced;

either directly by precipitation as hydrated oxide or carbonate, or

indirectly by exposing the brown anhydrous oxide to air and light--the

latter mode yielding a product of greater opacity. However prepared,

cadmium white is deficient in body, and apt to assume a yellow tint on

meeting with an impure atmosphere.
