Background Selenium dioxide is a colorless solid. It is one of the most frequently encountered compounds of selenium. It occurs naturally in a very rare mineral called downeyite. Selenium dioxide is a one-dimensional polymer. When in its solid state, it sublimes readily.
Organic Synthesis Selenium dioxide is important to organic synthesis. It acts as an oxidizer through a Riley oxidation reaction.
Glass Production Selenium dioxide is used to counteract blue tones due to cobalt impurities, which gives the appearance of colorless glass. When used in large quantities, it gives a deep red color.
