The Structure Of Molten Nickel Chloride

Newport, Robert J., Howe, R.A., Wood, N.D. (1985) The Structure Of Molten Nickel Chloride. Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics, 18 (27). pp. 5249-5257. ISSN 0022-3719. (doi:10.1088/0022-3719/18/27/012) (KAR id:15938)


The structure of molten NiCl2 has been investigated by the scattering of neutrons from isotropically enriched samples. The three partial structure factors relating to Ni-Ni, Cl-Cl and Ni-Cl correlations and the three corresponding radial distribution functions have been determined from the experimental data. The results are compared with those obtained from earlier studies of 2:1 molten salts and are discussed in the context of polarisation and ion size effects.
