General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.
Major phase is Ni3S2. Product may also include a small amount of sulfur-rich phase. Nickel Sulfide (Ni3S2) exists as a heazlewoodite mineral in nature. The structure of Ni3S2 is hombohedral. Raman spectral analysis of Ni3S2 has been reported.


Nickel sulfide was implanted in mice, to induce the growth of malignant fibrous histiocytomas.
