Abstract : It was learned that the previously employed technique of drying NiF2.4H2O with thionyl chloride was unsatisfactory. Preparation of anhydrous nickel fluoride is difficult and without sophisticated equipment, pure NiF2 is impossible. A new vendor can now supply anhydrous NiF2 of reasonable purity. Viscosity and conductivity studies of electrolytes using KPF6 as a solute are reported. All electrolytes appear to be weak in the sense that lambda versus square root of C plots are not straight lines. Equivalent conductances at infinite dilution are calculated for DMSO, acetonitrile, and nitromethane using KPF6 as a solute. (Author)
