Silver is used as a deposit for decorative and aesthetic appeal on jewellery, hollowers, flatware etc. It is also used in engineering industries for various reasons like high heat and electrical conductivity and good antigalling property on bearings, electronic components like socket contacts, ~lip rings, switch gear and wave guides for radars etc. Usually, silver is electroplated from cyanide based electrolytes and these solutions contain higher concentrations of both silver and cyanide causing heavy pollution due to emuents. Also. silver being costly, it was considered worthwhile to investigate the feasibility of evolving a bath formula with low concentration of silver as well as cyanide with equivalent characteristic features to the concentrated baths. Experiments were carried out with different concentrations of silver and cyanide and the results are compared with that of conventional cyanide based baths.
