An unconventional way of plating Ag by electroless means is by using the oxidation process of Co(II) to Co(III) in an ammonia complex to reduce the ionic Ag to metal. The present work deals with electroless Ag deposition on acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic. Detailed studies on the effect of bath constituents, bath operating conditions and addition agents on the deposition rate, quality of the Ag deposit and crystalline nature of the deposit on ABS plastic discs were carried out and the results discussed.
