Nickel definition: A trace element with the atomic symbol Ni, atomic number 28, and atomic weight 58.69. It is a cofactor of the enzyme UREASE.
nickel definition: trace metallic element, symbol Ni, atomic number 28.
Nickel definition: An element with atomic symbol Ni, atomic number 28, and atomic weight 58.69.
Nickel Carbonate definition: A light green, crystalline inorganic compound that produces toxic gases upon heating. Nickel carbonate is used in electroplating, to prepare nickel monoxide, to make colored glass and as a catalyst in the treatment of wastewater. Exposure to this substance can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies and affects the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. Nickel carbonate is a known carcinogen and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. (NCI05)
Nickel Carbonyl definition: A colorless, volatile and highly flammable, liquid inorganic compound with a characteristic, musty odor that emits toxic carbon monoxide fumes upon heating. Nickel carbonyl is primarily used for nickel coatings and to manufacture high-purity nickel powder. Exposure to this substance can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies and affects the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. Nickel carbonyl is a known carcinogen and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. (NCI05)
Nickel Chloride definition: A green or yellow colored, crystalline inorganic compound that produces toxic gases upon heating. Nickel chloride is used in electroplating, in nickel catalysts and to absorb ammonia in industrial gas masks. Exposure to this substance can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies and affects the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. Nickel chloride is a known carcinogen and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. (NCI05)
Nickel Monoxide definition: A green to black colored, inorganic compound that turns yellow and produces toxic gases upon heating. Nickel monoxide is used in the electronics, ceramics, steel and alloy industries. Exposure to this substance can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies and damages the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. Nickel monoxide is a known carcinogen and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. (NCI05)
Nickel Subsulfide definition: Exposure to inorganic carcinogenic Nickel Subsulfide, an atmospheric pollutant primarily generated by industries that manufacture lithium batteries, results in inflammation, hyperplasia, and fibrosis in the lungs and olfactory epithelium. (NCI04)
Nickel Sulfate definition: A yellow, green or blue colored, crystalline inorganic compound that produces toxic gases upon heating. Nickel sulfate is used in electroplating and as a chemical intermediate to produce other nickel compounds. Exposure to this substance can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies and affects the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. Nickel sulfate is a known carcinogen and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. (NCI05)
Nickel Sulfide definition: A dark green to black colored, crystalline inorganic compound that produces toxic gases upon heating. Nickel sulfide is used in lithium batteries, as a catalyst in the petrochemical industry and is used in the manufacture of silicate-oxide nickel ores. Exposure to this substance can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies and affects the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. Nickel sulfide is a known carcinogen and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. (NCI05)
Nickel Compound definition: A strong, corrosion and heat resistant, inorganic substance that contains the metallic element nickel. Nickel compounds are used in industry for electroplating, nickel-alloy production, stainless steel production, in batteries, in electronics, in the ceramic industry and as catalysts. Exposure to nickel compounds affects the kidneys and respiratory tract and is associated with developing lung and nasal cancer. (NCI05)
Nickel Acetate definition: A greenish, crystalline inorganic compound that produces toxic gases upon heating. Nickel acetate is used in textile dyeing processes, in electroplating, and as a catalyst intermediate. Exposure to this substance can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies and causes damage to the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. Nickel acetate is a known carcinogen and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. (NCI05)
nickel ion binding definition: Interacting selectively with nickel (Ni) ions. [GOC:ai]
response to nickel ion definition: A change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a nickel ion stimulus. [GOC:sm]
Nickel Hydroxide definition: A green, crystalline, inorganic compound that produces toxic gases upon heating. Nickel hydroxide is used in nickel-cadmium batteries and as a catalyst in chemical reactions. Exposure to this substance can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies and affects the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. Nickel hydroxide is a known carcinogen and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. (NCI05)
Ni2+ definition: Nickel ion requiring two electrons to return to its elemental state.
Dietary Nickel definition: Forms of the element nickel found in foods.
