Carbonyl selenide is the chemical compound with the formula OCSe. It is a colorless linear molecule that is primarily of interest for research purposes.

Properties[edit]

Carbonyl selenide is a colorless gas with an unpleasant odor.[1] Although the compound is quite stable, its solutions gradually revert to elemental selenium and carbon monoxide.[2]

Synthesis and reactions[edit]

Carbonyl selenide can be produced by treating selenium with carbon monoxide in the presence of amines.[3]

It is used in organoselenium chemistry as a means of incorporating selenium into organic compounds, e.g. for the preparation of selenocarbamates.[3]
