Selenium dioxide is mainly used in the electrolytic manganese industry, producing about 1 kg of selenium dioxide (with slightly different processes), and the electrolytic manganese industry accounts for about 80% of the amount of selenium dioxide. Secondly, it is used for the production of sodium selenite in the feed industry, and it is also used as the raw material of leaf selenium fertilizer in the agricultural industry. Other can also be used for analysis, precipitation of zirconium, hafnium. Verification of alkaloids. Oxidant. Manufacturing of other selenium compounds and highly pure selenium. Catalyst.

  1. Used to make high pure selenium and other selenium compounds or an oxidative agent and catalyst for organic synthetic drugs
  2. Used as a special reagent for plant alkaloids and can also be used to precipitate zirconium, hafnium, and preparation of selenium compounds
  3. Used as an organic compound oxidant, catalyst, chemical reagent, and various inorganic selenium compounds. Also used in photocopiers, rectifiers, etc.
  4. Used to makes other selenium compounds, alkaloid verification, and oxidants. Reacting with ammonia produces nitrogen and selenium and in alcohol solution ethyl ammonium selenite [NH₄ (CH5) SeO), nitrogen and black amorphous selenium with hydrazine, nitrogen and hydroxylamine hydrochloride with red-brown amorphous selenium, and selenic acid with nitrate acid.
