A detailed study, including the investigation of many methods of
preparing a thallium sulphamate solution for thallium plating has
been carried out. The optimum conditions for such a solution have
been defined following experiments concerning the effect of
different variables (polarisation, current density and additives).
Satisfactory thallium electrodeposits have been obtained. [Continues.]
