It has been demonstrated that silver could be plated on colloidal oxides by reducing silver salts in the presence of colloidal oxides in aqueous solution. In this electroless plating manner, silver coatings have been applied to colloidal silica, tin oxide and to these colloids which have previously been coated with a few monolayers of tin silicate. Data from this study have demonstrated the technical feasibility of electroless plating for the preparation of silver-tin oxide composites as a source of this material for electrical contact materials.
