Over the last two decades the Bureau of Mines had conducted several studies of the electrodeposition of platinum-group metals from a molten alkali metal cyanide bath. Bureau research has focused on producing platinum-group metal coatings on refractory metals and on more common structural materials. This research has shown that high- quality thick, adherent, and coherent deposits can be prepared. The methods used for electrolyte preparation, the parameters important in the deposition process, and some of the physical properties of the platinum coatings produced are presented in this paper. For in- depth discussions of specific topics, a bibliography of Bureau research is also included.
