Title:Non-Cyanide Silver as a Substitute for Cyanide Processes
Author(s):Chicago Metal Finishers Institute
Subject(s):Silver-plating -- Pollution prevention

Abstract:Since the mid 1800s, silver has been deposited from a cyanide-based formulation on a commercial basis. Commercial non-cyanide silver plating solutions were first made generally available in the late 1970s, and yet today the vast majority, and nearly all commercial silver plating is conducted in formulations that contain cyanide. This study was conducted to determine if non-cyanide silver plating processes that have been developed in the last few years would be suitable replacements for cyanide based formulations.
