Since the mid 1800s, silver has been deposited from a cyanide-based formulation on a
commercial basis. Commercial non-cyanide silver plating solutions were first made generally
available in the late 1970s, and yet today the vast majority, and nearly all commercial silver
plating is conducted in formulations that contain cyanide.
This study was conducted to determine if non-cyanide silver plating processes that have been
developed in the last few years would be suitable replacements for cyanide based formulations.
