RE: Lithium Chloropalladite...

You can buy Palladium(II) Chloride and Lithium Chloride (relatively
cheap) separately and combine them to make your own Li2PdCl4 solution. I
know that from time to time, people get together for being able to order
relatively big amounts (over 250 - 500 grams) of Palladium(II) Chloride
(there was a recent thread @ APUG.org: http://tinyurl.com/yfxlbo). It
may make sense to buy the palladium salt alone since you can mix it with
different compounds (KCl - for DOP, LiCl - for Ziatype, NH4Cl - for Ware
POP) later.

...say that five times fast.  :)  Anyway...

I'm considering giving the ziatype a try, but don't want to spend $63
for a 25ml bottle of lithium palladium.  Does anyone know of a less
expensive source?

I'd probably be willing to buy in bulk, since I could use it for other
palladium processes (right?), but I'd rather not if I don't have to.
