Palladium is frequently alloyed with gold, silver, iridium and other platinum group 

elements for use in jewelry. The metal is used in surgical instruments and 

electrical contacts. Palladium is also an excellent hydrogenation and 

dehydrogenation catalyst and is available in many organometallic forms for this 

purpose. Highly  purity (99.999%) Palladium Oxide (PdO) PowderPalladium is 

available as metal and compounds with purities from 99% to 99.999% (ACS grade 

to ultra-high purity). Elemental or metallic forms include pellets, rod, wire and 

granules for evaporation source material purposes. High Purity (99.999%) 

Palladium (Pd)  Sputtering Target Palladium nanoparticles and nanopowders 

provide ultra-high surface area. Palladium oxide is available in powder and dense 

pellet form for such uses as optical coating and thin film applications. Oxides tend 

to be  insoluble. Palladium fluoride is another insoluble palladium source for uses 

in which oxygen is undesirable such as metallurgy, chemical and physical vapor 

deposition and in some optical coatings. Palladium is also available in soluble 

forms including chlorides, nitrates and acetates. These compounds can be 

manufactured as solutions at specified stoichiometries.
