Nickel Oxide Micron Powder
Nickel oxide is the chemical compound with the chemical formula of NiO. It is an important transition metal oxide with cubic lattice structure. Nickel is a Block D, Period 4 element, while oxygen is a Block P, Period 2 element. Nickel oxide micron powders appear in green powder form and are graded as very toxic. Nickel oxide powders can be manufactured by thermal decomposition of freshly prepared nickel hydroxife by sol gel route at 300°C (572°F). Due to their special structures and properties, nickel oxide powders are widely used in various fields such as photoelectric, catalysts, sensors, ceramic materials, recording materials, etc. They exhibit anodic electrochromism, excellent durability, electrochemical stability, large spin optical density and various manufacturing possibilities. Nickel oxide micron powder is also a low-cost material for ion storage applications, also the fact that NiO is a semiconductor, it becomes an interesting topic in the area of research.
