Nickel Chloride

Distributor of nickel chloride

Description

Nickel anhydrous chloride boils at 600° and on contact with the air absorbs water and forms stable hydrated derivatives; the hexahydrate derivative has the appearance of a green crystalline powder. Nickel chloride is soluble in water, while not so soluble in alcohol and organic solvents; it is an important element for galvanic baths and in the form of anhydrous, nickel chloride is used in anti-gas masks as an ammonia absorbent. It is interesting to note that the compound in question and, more generally, all inorganic nickel salts may cause irritation by prolonged contract with the skin.
