Nickel oxide ( NiO ) can be obtained as either a green or black crystalline powder.
|Melting Point (°C)
Nickel oxide has a range of applications such as:
- For making electrical ceramics such as thermistors and varistors e.g. ferrites (nickel zinc ferrite)
- Pigments for ceramic, glasses and glazes
- Nickel oxide can be reacted with acids to form salts and other compounds e.g. nickel sulfamate for electroplating and nickel molybdate for hydrodesulfurisation catalysts
- Gold doped nickel oxide films can be used as transparent electrodes in optoelectronic devices
