Mercury selenide can also refer to the following chemical compounds: HgSe2 and HgSe8. HgSe is strictly mercury(II) selenide.
HgSe occurs naturally as the mineral Tiemannite.
Along with other II-VI compounds, colloidal nanocrystals of HgSe can be formed.
Additional recommended knowledge
HgSe is toxic due to the mercury content (see mercury poisoning). Toxic hydrogen selenide fumes can be evolved on exposure to acids. HgSe is a relatively stable compound which might mean that it is less toxic than elemental mercury or many organometallic mercury compounds.
