Abstract A partial phase diagram of the cadmium oxide-tellurium dioxide system is presented. The results of attempts to prepare substantial single crystals of congruently and incongruently melting phases are recorded along with the properties of such crystals. It is shown that one of the two compounds obtained as single crystals, namely cadmium di-tellurite, possesses a mica-like nature with excellent insulating properties, but is not piezo-electric. The other, namely cadmium mono-tellurite, can exist in two forms, one of which is piezo-electric.
