Nickel Oxide (NiO) micro powder

Prospects for using nanomaterials with a diameter <100 nm in a number of applications are extensively studied in many fields such as biology, physics, chemistry, cosmetics, optical components, drug production, polymer science, mechanics, and toxicology. This article analyzes the properties and applications of nickel oxide nanoparticles. Nickel is an element of block D, period 4, while oxygen is a block element P, period 2. The nanoparticles of nickel oxides appear as a green powder and are classified as very toxic. They can cause an allergic skin reaction, prolonged harmful effects on the aquatic life, and possible damage to organs due to prolonged or repeated exposure.
Nickel oxide nanoparticles can be produced by thermal decomposition of freshly prepared nickel hydroxide via sol-gel at 300 ° C (572 ° F). Nanoparticles nickel oxide created by this method can be characterized using an X-ray diffractometer and vibrating magnetometer sample.
The main applications of nickel oxide nanoparticles are the following:
In preparation of nickel cermets for the anodic layer of solid oxide fuel cells
In lithium nickel oxide cathodes for lithium-ion micro-batteries.
In electrochromic coatings, plastics, and fabrics.
In nanowires, nanofibers, and specific applications of alloys and catalysts.
As a catalyst and as anti-ferromagnetic layers.
In lightweight structural components in the aerospace industry.
Stickers and dyes for glazes.
Inactive optical filters
In ceramic structures
In automotive rear-view mirrors with adjustable reflectance.
In cathode materials for alkaline batteries.
Electrochromic materials
Energy-efficient smart windows
Transparent conductive films type P
Materials for gas sensors or temperature sensors such as CO, H2 sensors, and formaldehyde sensors
As against electrodes.
