In chemistry, metal chalcogenides are compounds consisting of a metal and an element which is a member of the chalcogen column of the periodic table. While oxygen is a member of the chalcogens, so all metal oxides are technically metal chalcogenides, the term is commonly used only to refer to compounds of a metal with sulfur, selenium or tellurium, and polonium.
