Binary compounds of selenium with other more electropositive elements. Selenides of nonmetals are covalent (e.g. H2Se). Most metal selenides can be prepared by direct combination of the elements. Some are well-defined ionic compounds (containing Se2−), while others are nonstoichiometric interstitial compounds (e.g. Pd4Se, PdSe2).
