NiSO4 storage


Hi.

Are any problems with storage of NiSO4? Can I do experiments with it in closed room? I know it is carcinogenic and I don't want to endanger anyone with bad storage or manipulation.

I store mine at room temp in an HDPE jar. You want to make sure you avoid breathing any dust.

Heyyy


It should be fine just to store it in a regular glass jar or even a rigid plastic container.

Remember nickel salt are way more of a danger to handle once its dissolved in water. It can easily contact or skin or be over looked and thrown in the drain... which is bad. Sadly i know from experience but i try my best to practice safe chemistry now and learn from my mistakes.

a simple but not full proof way of recovering most transition metal salts is to form the carbonate by using a sodium bicarbonate solution.

Hope this helps. Stay safe.

Long-term inhalation is what carcinogenicity is linked to. In other words you're better off keeping it as larger crystals than a fine, dry powder.

Seller offers this NiSO4. It is small crystals than powder.

I thought I might it recover as nickel hydroxide. If I'll precipitate it and later dissolve it in acid there is no aerosol of Ni2+ (unlike carbonate).

But I don't know what I'll do with 1,5kg NiSO4 :(. 200g is enough for me.

Resell the remaining 1.3kg?

I wouldn't worry about nickel sulfate stored in a closed container, be it plastic or glass (not metal since many metals can be corroded by nickel sulfate). It doesn't have any conceivable way of getting into the air under such circumstances.
