It’s mainly used in electro-nickeling and preparation of ceramic colored glaze and other nickel salt and catalyst containing nickel, etc.


Nickel nitrate hexahydrate is green crystal.

It’s easy in moisture absorption.

It disintegrates in dry air.

It decomposes into tetrahydrate by losing four water molecules and then converts into anhydrous salt at temperature of 100℃.

It’s easily dissolved in water, soluble in alcohol, and slightly soluble in acetone.

Its aqueous solution is acidity.

It will burn once in contact with organic chemicals.

It’s harmful to swallow.
