Analysis of Tin Plating Bath Solution


Dear Sirs,

I am trying to find methods of analysis of a Tin Plating bath solution which consists of: Na2Sno3 3H2O =70 gr/l, NaOH= 11 gr/l,and lCH3COONa=22 gr/l. I have to determine the concentration of Tin Stannate (Na2SnO3 3H2O) (gr/l) and Free Sodium Hydroxide(NaOH)(gr/l)in the above solution. Please, suggest to me methods.

Thanking in advance,

Dear friend,

You have to take 5 ml of bath solution add to it 5 ml conc. HCl and 5 ml starch indicator and titrate it against 0.1 N Iodine solution. Multiply B.R. by 1.187 you will get the GPL of Stannous.

Dear friend

I would like to thank you for your response to the first part of my question, determination of Sodium Stannate. I would really appreciate if you or anybody else could give me a method for the second part of my question that is the determination of Free Sodium Hydroxide in the Tin Plating Solution Bath.

Thank you again,

dear Fotini

mix 10 ml of vat sample with 50 ml Cl2Ba (10%) and few drops of thymolphtalein indicator. titrate with N hydrochloric acid to blue end point.

Titre x 4.00 =g/l free NaOH

PS:due to absorption of the indicator by precipitate,add few extra spot of indicator in half way of titration.

Dear Onkar Kulkarni,

I use the method you suggest for the tin stannic salts but add a nickel catalyst to the tin and HCl and boil to a receiving vessel for 40 mins and titrate as your method. This is time consuming but does work is your method comparable with mine? as I will try you method out

Many thanks,
