Palladium. (Palladium Metallicum.)

Palladium. Pd.

A metal accompanying Platina and Aurum.

Proposed as a remedy as early as 1833. See Stapf' Archives.

“This metal belongs with Mercury, Silver, Gold, Platina, and others occurring in small quantities, like Iridium, Rhodium, Ruthenium, and the very remarkable Osmium, to the so-called precious metals; that is, such as are reducible by themselves, more easily separable from oxygen than the others, but having greater affinity for Sulphur. If we classify the Sulphides according to their solubility in dilute acids, Palladium must be placed with Argentum, Rhodium, Ruthenium and Osmium, and Platina remains with the less soluble Mercury, Aurum and Iridium. The nature of solubility in dilute acids one would expect would show itself in the provings. Platina and Palladium both proved in dust form showed such similarity in their effects that the question arose whether corresponding differences might be found. These data can only be furnished by frequent use of Palladium in practice.” –C. Hg., N. A. J. H., vol. 9, new series, p. 129. Introduced and proved in 1850 by C. Hering, upon himself, Margaret C., Raue, Tietze, Pehrson, Coxe and family, and Neidhard. –N. A. J. H., vol. 9, new series, p. 129.
