Palladium Chloride (PdCl2) of Micron Platers
Description of the Product
What is Palladium Chloride?
Palladium Chloride, also known as palladium dichloride and palladous chloride, are the chemical compounds with the formula PdCl2.
Palladium Chloride is a common starting material in palladium chemistry – palladium-based catalysts are of value in organic synthesis. It is prepared by the reaction of chlorine with palladium metal at high temperatures.
Preparation of Palladium Chloride:
Palladium Chloride is prepared by dissolving palladium metal in aqua regia or hydrochloric acid in the presence of chlorine. Alternatively, it may be prepared by heating palladium sponge metal with chlorine gas at 500° C.
Uses of Palladium Chloride:
• Used to rapidly stain stainless steel.
