Arsenic - National Center for Biotechnology Information

In the natural environment, arsenic is rarely encountered as the free element. More frequently it is a component of sulfidic ores, in which it occurs as metal arsenides, e.g., nickel diarsenide, cobalt diarsenide, nickel arsenide, cobalt arsenide sulfide, copper arsenide sulfide, and iron diarsenide.
