|PLATING & ETCHING SOLUTION||Quantitative determination of nickel chloride in nickel plating solution|
The control and analysis of nickel plating solution are very important process for the product quality. Analytical components of the general nickel plating solution are 1) nickel sulfate, 2) nickel chloride, and 3) boric acid. This report introduces an example of measurement for nickel chloride in nickel plating solution determined by potentiometric titration with silver nitrate standard solution.

2. Configuration of instruments and Reagents
|(1)||Configuration of instruments|
|Main unit||:||Hiranuma Automatic Titrator COM Series|
|Electrode||:||Silver combination electrode AGR-811Z (Double Junction Type)
*The following electrodes are also usable.
・AGR-801Z (Silver reference combination electrode)
・Combination of AG-311 (Silver indicator electrode) and MS-231Z (Silver reference electrode)
・Combination of AG-311 and RE-241Z (Double junction type silver reference electrode)
The general reference electrode (RE-201Z) cannot be used for this titration because KCl inner solution might come out to sample solution and it causes measurement error.
The inner electrodes of AGR-801Z and MS-231Z contain mercury (I) sulfate. When these electrodes are disposed, please ask the specialized industrial waste disposal operator.
|Titrant||:||0.05 mol/L Silver nitrate standard solution|
|Additive solution||:||1 mL of 1 mol/L Nitric acid|

Example of titration curve
|(1)||Quantitative determination method of total nickel
Quantitative determination method of total nickel in nickel plating solution can be performed by the following procedure: add 60 mL of water to 1 mL of sample, add 20 mL of diluted ammonia solution and MX indicator, and then it is determined by photometric titration with 0.1 mol/L EDTA standard solution. (Refer to application data E10.)
|(2)||Quantitative determination method of boric acid
Quantitative determination method of boric acid in nickel plating solution can be performed by the following procedure: add 50 mL of water to 1 mL of sample, add 20 mL of 20 % mannitol solution, and then it is determined by potentiometric titration with 0.1 mol/L sodium hydroxide standard solution. (Refer to application data J8.)
