Description of key information

In nitrogen, the powder starts melting at 309°C, in air it starts melting at 321°C;
In nitrogen, the cast cadmium particles start melting at 309°C , in air they start melting at 313°C;
In nitrogen, the substance does not decompose, sublimation temperature is ca. 450°C for the powder and ca. 400°C for the cast particles.
In air, the substance starts oxidizing at ca. 270°C (powder) and circa 470°C (cast metal) (Outotec, 2010).
