    Has anyone purchased Pld on ebay. Have been looking for a source for Pld Cl about 5-10g and so far it looks like Bostick and Sullivan is still the best place. Does anyone else have a source that they would care to share? This will be used to make Sol. 3 for Ziatypes (which I believe to be lithium palladium).

    As always, Thanks

    Thought as much, just wondering about the stuff posted on epay....but as normal, the best thing seems to be stay away and go with what is known.

    Thanks Ray...

    Who is the seller? FotoChem sells on Ebay but I don't know about those PLD things. Usually it's cheaper to buy direct from Fotochem then off them on Ebay.

    Artcraftchemicals is a little cheaper than B&S....Give Michael Jacobson a call. I have bought silver nitrate on e bay and it was fine.....never pd...why save $10 and risk having substandard pd?
