Nickel hydroxide occurs naturally as the mineral Theophrastus. It is electroactive and is converted to Ni (III) oxy-hydroxide in response to electrical stimuli. It is insoluble in water and dissolves readily in acids and ammonium hydroxide. It is non-explosive and non-oxidizing under normal conditions. It has a melting point of 2300C and decomposes before melting at 2000C. Its autoignition temperature or flash point is 4000C. It is denser than water having a density of 4g/cm3.

Nickel hydroxide has two distinct polymorphs, namely α- Ni (OH) 2 and β-Ni (OH) 2. The α structure is composed of nickel hydroxide layers integrated with intercalated anions or water, whereas β structure is made up of a hexagonal structure of Ni2+ and OH− ions, without any kind of intercalated ions. Apart from, the α and β forms of nickel hydroxide, γ- Ni (OH)2 is made up of crystal structures having much bigger inter-sheet distances.
However, rising concerns about toxicity restrains the market growth. Nickel hydroxide has carcinogenic properties and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. Exposure to this substance can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies. It affects the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of metallic Nickel.
Toxicity and safety concerns have driven research into increasing the energy density of nickel hydroxide electrodes, such as the addition of cadmium or cobalt or zinc to it. Additionally, rising raw material prices may hamper the production over the review period 2017-2023.
