Molecule Structure Image



Nickel chloride is very rarely found in nature as mineral nickelbischofite. Nickel salts are carcinogenic. They are also deliquescent, absorbing moisture from the air to form a solution. Nickel chloride and its hydrate are occasionally useful in organic synthesis. Its solutions are used for electroplating nickel onto other metal items.
