Cadmium Sulfate Structural Formula
When X-ray is passed on Cadmium Sulfate we can visualise that each Cd2+ centre has octahedral coordination and is being surrounded by 4 oxygen centres provided by 4 sulfate ligands and 2 oxygen centres from the bridging water ligands. The structural formula for Cadmium Sulfate is as shown in the figure below.
