Metabolite Identification
Common NameSelenium Sulfide
DescriptionSelenium Sulfide, also known as selsun or caspiselenio, belongs to the class of inorganic compounds known as other non-metal sulfides. These are inorganic compounds containing a sulfur atom of an oxidation state of -2, in which the heaviest atom bonded to the oxygen belongs to the class of other non-metals. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Selenium Sulfide.
