    How to make gold plating solution.

    Hi, thanks for your question. It is much easier to plate with silver, and the process does not require the use of poisonous cyanide compounds. However, I've never silver plated before thus my knowledge is only hypothetical. You need a solution of silver nitrate as the electrolyte, and the negative terminal of electrolysis must be pure silver. If you don't know how to make silver nitrate you can check out youtube channels (NurdRage, or NileRed) they both have great videos on making silver nitrate.I am not exactly sure about the concentration of silver nitrate solution. Personally, I would dissolve 1g of silver nitrate per 100ml of water. The deposition of silver may take a while, as the conductivity of this solution will be very low. So if thinking logically, the more concentrate the so...see more »Hi, thanks for your question.

So if thinking logically, the more concentrate the solution of silver nitrate the faster it will be depositing the silver. The gold plating solution that I made, can also be used to deposit gold on some other metals including copper, stainless steel, brass etc. However, it does not seem to work on zinc metal, and I couldn't figure out why.

    How to Make Flash Paper (nitrocellulose)

    Hi, thanks for your comment I am very happy to know someone is interested in my content. Perhaps it won't be easy to find a nitric acid as this chemical is restricted in many countries. However, I am also covering a video where I am making nitric acid on my youtube channel.
