Title: Message

Tom, Just add the salt to the water first. Life is much easier that way, and if you question your scale, error on the slightly too much sodium chloride, no harm. Too little and your palladium chloride will have nothing to combine with to make the double salt.

Yes. Non-iodized Morton's salt. It is easy.

I would like to prepare my own 'Standard Palladium Solution No.3'.


Sullivan and Weese (in the 'New Platinum Print') give the followiing formula:


palladium chloride              2.3 gm

sodium chloride                  2.0 gm

water to make                   25 ml



My question is : just good old noniodized table salt?


Seems too easy...


Thanks in advance,
