    Nickel Isotope Materials

    Isotopic variation among major inorganic compartments of nickel is very small, vanishing in the measurement uncertainty of 0.1–0.2 ‰ for δ60/58NiSRM986 values. As a consequence, nickel has been used rarely in stable isotope studies. The majority of reports on nickel isotopes have focused on radiogenic isotope studies, on nutrition studies, and some on mass-dependent isotopic fractionation studies.
