That was the previous method. I do not think it ended up depositing much Pd
on the Ni. Or, I should say I think it ended up depositing Pd all over the
place. In Appendix A he describes two newer methods, in step 3:
Rub the surface with pure palladium. The palladium will adhere to the mesh.
Alternatively, the palladium can be plated onto the mesh (plating solution:
Tanaka, Inc., PDMO2LB). This is the key step. In an industrial process, a
similar material might be fabricated by some other method such as
Anyway, I will ask him about this.
