Spectrochemical Analysis of Palladium by the Sponge Technique

CIM Bulletin, 1953

C. L. LEWiS; W. L. OTI

A technique is described for preparation of palladium sponge and for spectrochemical analysis of the metal in this form. The precision and accuracy of the method are discussed. Analyses are compared with previous spectrochemical analyses of palladium in the black form. Good agreement was found in the two sets •of results and it is concluded that they are more reliable than wet chemical analyses of the same material.
