Metals as main components of electroplating baths

The concentration of metals in electroplating baths can vary considerably depending on intended purpose. The required thickness of the coating, the nature of the material and market prices for the expensive noble metals are the key parameters. The appropriate analytical technique is selected according to the concentration of the metal to be determined.

 Typical Applications:

Titrimetric applications
Copper and nickel in acidic metal baths
Ion chromatographic applications
Silver and ammonium in etching baths containing hydrofluoric acid
Voltammetric applications
Metal determination and speciation analyses in electroplating baths
