Ambient temperatures.
Very soluble in water, ethanol, ammonia.


Nickel sulfate hexahydrate is mainly used in Ni plating, as mordant in dyeing and in printing textiles, as a blackening agent for zinc and brass and in the fabrication of organic nickel salts. It is used as an effective catalyst for gas-phase dehydration of glycerol to acrolein. Nickel sulfate hexahydrate crystal is an efficient ultraviolet filter material. Columns used in biochemistry and molecular biology can be regenerated with nickel sulfate. It is used to prepare nickel carbonate, a precursor to pigments and nickel-based catalysts.


Stable at room temperature; incompatible with strong acids, and strong oxidizing agents.
