Title: METHOD FOR ELECTRODEPOSITING POLONIUM

Abstract

The deposition of a thick uniform layer of polonium metal from aqueous solutions can be carried out by electrolyzing an aqueous solution of 1 N hydrofluoric acid containing about 0.13 curie of polonium per cubic centimeter of solution with platinum electrodes and a current density of about 1.2 ma/cm/sup 2/ of cathode surface.
