Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

All five nickel compounds (nickel chloride, nickel dinitrate, nickel hydroxycarbonate, nickel sulphate, nickel metal) release Ni2+ into the environment, and partitioning coefficients for this ionic form are therefore relevant for all five substances. Ni2+ partitioning coefficient for solid-water in suspended matter (Kp susp) is 26303 (log Kp susp = 4.42). Ni2+ partitioning coefficient for sediment-porewater (Kp sed) is 7,079 (log Kp sediment = 3.85). Ni2+ partitioning coefficient for soil-water (Kp soil) is 726 (log Kp soil = 2.86). Ni2+ partitioning coefficients were based on 50th percentiles of distributions of values from available high quality data.
