Dissolution of pure gold and silver for electroplating


I am a beginner in the business of eletroplating and I would like to know the procedures for dissolving pure gold and pure silver.

Welcome, Walter. As a beginner you wouldn't realize that that isn't the way it's done. Rather, you buy gold plating solutions and silver plating solutions and they are already mixed to contain the correct proportions of material for the type of deposit you wish to electroplate: hard/soft for jewelry/electronics for striking/plating, etc.

Please get a copy of the Metal Finishing Guidebook and you'll have a better feel for what it's about. The guidebook issue is included with a subscription to metal finishing magazine or you can get an old copy. Good luck.
