Some important applications of the compounds derived from transition elements:

Some coloured inorganic compounds - derived from transition elements - are used as pigments in dyes. Some examples of the used compounds: Titanium dioxide (white) – Cobalt phosphate (violet) – Cobalt stannate (Blue) – Cobalt aluminate (dark blue) - Chromium oxide (green) – Hydrated Chromium oxide (dark green) - Cadmium sulfide (yellow) – Cadmium selenide (red) – Cadmium sulfoselenide (orange) - Zinc chromate (yellow).
