"Electroless palladium plating bath"
An ongoing discussion from 1999 through 2015 . . .1999
Q. I am currently doing a project at UMIST, and require some information on electroless palladium deposition. Is there a technique that will form thin films on steel substrates? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Hopefully MattMatthew Allen

A. You should look into sputter coating of the palladium. Try Teer Coatings Ltd., or you may want to talk to the coatings group at the University of Salford. They both have systems that can do the job very easily, and with much better quality than you can get from plating.

A. Hi David. Mallory & Hajdu has 10 pages on electroless palladium baths, with 10 formulations. I have no experience with it, and it's certainly possible that none of the 10 are actually practical in production. If anyone has a commercial one available, I'd bet on it being Technic or DeGussa. Good luck.
