Nickel(II) fluoride is the chemical compound with the formula NiF2. Its is an ionic compound of nickel and fluorine and forms yellowish to green tetragonal crystals. Unlike many fluorides, NiF2 is stable in air. NiF2 comprises the passivating surface that forms on nickel alloys (e.g. monel) in the presence of hydrogen fluoride or elemental fluorine, which is why nickel and its alloys are among the few materials that can be used to store or transport these fluorine compounds. NiF2 is also used as a catalyst for the synthesis of chlorine pentafluoride.
