Infobox references

Nickel(III) oxide (Ni2O3) has been referred to in the literature but is not a well characterised compound.[1] The substance black nickel oxide is sometimes described as being Ni2O3 however the composition quoted by suppliers has a nickel content of around 77% by weight whereas Ni2O3 would have 70.98% Ni by weight, and may be non-stoichiometric NiO.[1]
There are references in the literature to traces of Ni2O3 on nickel surfaces, and as intermediates in nickel oxidation, e.g. [2][3].

Nickel oxide hydroxide

The related nickel oxide hydroxide (NiOOH) can be prepared by reaction of nickel(II) chloride with sodium hypochlorite; the sodium hypochlorite functions as an oxidizing agent. In one modification[4] the compound is used in a catalytic amount with bleach in stoichometric amount in the oxidation of benzyl alcohol to benzoic acid:

Nickel oxide hydroxide oxidation of benzyl alcohol

or in double oxidation of 3-butenoic acid to fumaric acid:

Nickel oxide hydroxide oxidation of 3-butenoicid
