Hey girl, are you made of Copper and Tellurium because you are CuTe!


Status update:

10/9: Heading to the mines to help out! 3...2...1...BOOM!

10/10: I love my job! I add color to the world through ceramics and glass artwork!!

10/10: OUCH! Got electrocuted today, last time I'm helping out with electrical work!

10/29: The Law of Conservation of Matter says that matter cannot be created or destroyed. Matter simply changes, it doesn't create new matter.

11/4: So happy to be in a relationship with Cadmium!! <3


I hate when my friends make me mad, and I heat up to 989.8 degress Celsius. Usually, when I'm just chillin I melt to 449.5 degrees Celsius. Many people mix me up with my neighbor down the street, Tin, because we are both shiny and silver.




Relationship Status: 

reading bond 

Primary Relationship: 




valence electrons:


reactivity: reacts well with Copper 
state of matter:  solid 
Location on Periodic Table: Group 16 Period 5 


Discovered in 1782 


Found in Germany by Franz Muller von Reichenstein   


Tell All with Tellurium

Activities & Interests:

I mainly just stick to what I'm good at, which is being an alloying agent. My founder also used me with blasting caps which are used in the mines. Many people use me in electrical utilities.

There are four types of reactions. There are single-displacement reactions which is one element that takes place of another element in a compound. Another is a double-displacement reaction which is when two compounds exchange bonds in order to form different compounds. A third reaction is a synthesis reaction which is when two or more substances combine to form a new compound. Another reaction is a decomposition compound which is when a single compound breaks down to form two or more simpler substances. Tellurium is a part of a synthesis reaction.



10/11: Felt good to go back to my hometown in Germany!

10/12: It's kind of dark in these mines!

10/13: Just left the ceramic shop! Added a little bit of color to a wonderful piece of art!

10/29: Te(s) + 2O2(g) → TeO2(s) Oxygen and I in our chemical equation!

What is an alloy agent?

Alloys are metals or nonmetals dissolved in metals. The main reason to make an alloy is to give greater strength or protection from corrosion. Some examples of an alloying agents are brass, bronze, and steel.

Cadmium and I are finally in a relationship! Together we are a covalent bond! We also make a film that absorbs the sun and converts it to energy! We are a perfect couple! <3
