Plating Palladium from Palladium Nitrate Acid Solution
October 21, 2010
I have gallons of palladium nitrate solution developed from dissolving a palladium/silver material in nitric acid. The silver was precipitated using HCl and separated from the solution so that mostly palladium nitrate is present in a highly acidic solution.
I would like to electroplate the palladium using copper reticulate and stainless steel electrodes. I need to know what is the recommended pH of the solution, the best chemicals to achieve it, any recommended eH and the best chemicals to achieve it.
Thanks Marc Rhodes employee - Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA
