Cobalt(II) nitrate hexahydrate is a salt used in the production of cobalt(II) compounds, as an oxidizer, in the metal treatment, pigment and battery industries, and in gas to liquid catalysis. It is a strong oxidizing agent, has been used in some explosives, and is used in the preparation of other explosives such as ammonium perchlorate.
