Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic fumes of cadmium and sulfur oxides. 

Formula: CdSO4
Molecular mass: 208.5
Melting point: 1000°C
Density: 4.7 g/cm³
Solubility in water, g/100ml at 0°C: 75.5  


EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and by ingestion. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the respiratory tract. 

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

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
The substance may have effects on the kidneys and bones. This may result in kidney impairment and osteoporosis (bone weakness). This substance is carcinogenic to humans. 


Occupational exposure limits
TLV: (respirable fraction): 0.002 mg/m3, ppm, as TWA; A2 (suspected human carcinogen); BEI issued.
MAK: (as Cd, inhalable fraction): skin absorption (H); carcinogen category: 1; germ cell mutagen group: 3A 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur in plants. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment. 

NOTES
Health effects are here mainly based on the studies of other cadmium compounds.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
