Nickel-60 Information

Nickel is a malleable ductile silvery metallic transition element. Nickel was discovered by A.F. Cronstedt in 1751. Nickel has 33 isotopes, 5 of them are stable and naturally occurring.

Nickel is used in electroplating and metal alloys because of its resistance to corrosion. This element is also used in nickel-cadmium batteries
