    Is palladium chloride the stuff I want? I hope so- the price seems too good to be true at Artcraft, or a lot cheaper than the Potassium Tetra- and Hexachloropalladates anyway. Is it the same thing as sodium chloropalladite? Thanks

    Colin,

    $13/gram is a good price. And yes that is what you want. Now you will need some Sodium or Potassium Chloride in the proper ratio to the Pd and you are all set. I believe the ratio would be: 5.0 g Pd to 3.3 g NaCl or 4.2 g KCl to make up 50 ml solution. Someone correct me here if this is not true.
