Nickel Chloride is another name for a type of salt. It is a yellow salt and it is not table salt. There are other names for Nickel Chloride and they are nickelous chloride and nickel salt of hydrochloric acid.

It looks like yellow and brown crystals and sometimes green crystals. It does not have a smell and is considered to be odorless. It is very toxic. Other main hazards include irritant, and dangerous for the environment because it is a carcinogen. It is not flammable so it will not catch fire.

When around nickel chloride, you should take precautions like not ingesting it, inhaling it and avoid skin contact with it. The name of the compound and the formula for the compound is nickel ii chloride and NiCl2, respectively.

Nickel (ii) chloride and nicl2-nickel is one of the elements that doesnt have only charge, but many different possible charges. the roman numeral ii means 2. if we write nickel (ii), it means nickel with a charge of +2. if we dont write the ii, no one will know what charge nickel actually is. so, we write nickel (ii) chloride. nickel gives off two electrons and chlorine is only able to recieve one. so, introduce another atom of chlorine. one atom of nickel can give off two electrons and both atoms of chlorine will recieve one each. since there is one atom of nickel and two of chlorine, we write nicl2.
