The invention relates to the field of metallurgy of non-ferrous and noble metals, in particular to methods for selection of precious metals from waste, including refining production.

A method of obtaining silver powder [RF patent 1605419]. The method includes restoring containing silver sulphate with hydrogen as the source connection take the crushed alloy sulfate silver sulfate of an alkali metal selected from the group of: sodium, potassium, lithium, and after restoration of the remains of the alkali metal sulfate is removed by washing with water followed by filtration and drying.

The method has significant drawbacks: the size of the silver powder depends on the degree of grinding of raw materials, and the resulting silver, despite washing it with water, will still contain fused in him sulfate of an alkali metal.

A prototype of the selected method of obtaining silver powder [application OF No. 2000111932/02]. The method involves the dissolution of silver at the anode, the deposition of metallic sponge at the cathode, drying and sifting of the powder. In the electrolyte is injected chemical compounds that are able to oxidize metal ions and regenerated at the cathode, complexing agents and colloidal solutions of metals as centers of crystallization of the metal. The powders are further treated, as well as producing is their warm-up in water-diluted solution of a metal salt to extend the range of dispersion of the powder. After washing powder moistened with a saturated solution of ammonium carbonate, wring out and moistened with ethyl alcohol.

The disadvantages of the method is the deposition rate of silver sponge at the cathode is very limited, which is why you can get high-quality sponge in this way is impossible, as is generally formed powder. Due to the developed surface of the sponge in the deposition process is constantly changing the current density and, consequently, the sponge at the beginning of the deposition will have different properties (density, specific surface area) from the sponge at the end of the deposition. The method does not offer effective removal introduced into the electrolyte polyvalent ions.

The goal is to accelerate the process of obtaining silver sponge, improving the quality of the besieged sponge by improving its purity and obtaining a stable high-porous surface.

Proposed option 2 method of obtaining highly porous silver sponge of silver-containing materials.

The first variant of the method involves the preparation of a solution of silver sponge, the deposition of silver from a solution by the introduction of zinc. As a silver-containing materials choose silver salt. Pre-prepare a concentrated chloride solution of calcium chloride or zinc which is dissolved silver salt in accordance with its solubility at a temperature of capturesaver, with the subsequent introduction in the prepared solution of the silver salt of chloride of lead in number equal to the number of dissolved silver. Silver precipitated in the form of a metallic lead-silver sponge, and after leaching from lead-silver sponge to remove contaminants and lead by dissolving in hydrochloric acid to obtain a highly porous silver sponge.

The second way of obtaining highly porous silver sponge is also preparing a solution of a silver salt and precipitate the silver from the solution by the introduction of zinc. As a silver-containing material is chosen alloys of silver, which is dissolved in nitric acid, add water soluble chloride until complete precipitation of silver chloride, to prepare a solution of a silver salt. Before preparing a solution of a silver salt to prepare a concentrated solution of calcium chloride or zinc, in which dissolve silver chloride in accordance with its solubility at the boiling temperature of the solution. In the prepared solution of silver salt is administered chloride of lead in number equal to the number of dissolved silver. Silver precipitated in the form of a metallic lead-silver sponge, and after leaching from lead-silver sponge to remove contaminants and lead by dissolving in hydrochloric acid to obtain a highly porous the silver sponge.

As salts of polyvalent metals may be used and any lead salts, when administered in concentrated chloride solution any lead salt will react with the formation of chloride of lead.

In the proposed method, a significant difference is that pre-create special conditions for contact electrolysis (cementation) - deposition sponge zinc. As inert material, soosazhdenie with silver and subsequently removed, is structured lead sponge. Silver, soosazhdenie together with lead, also has the structure of a sponge. To obtain lead of sponges with a highly developed surface of their deposition must be made from concentrated chloride solutions. As such solutions it is possible to use solutions of calcium chloride and a solution of chloride of zinc.

Solutions of zinc chloride allow you to get more silver sponge, as in concentrated (close to saturated) solution of zinc chloride solubility of silver chloride is much higher than in concentrated solutions of calcium chloride.

Options allow you to speed up the process of obtaining silver sponge by reducing the deposition time of the sponge with the stable-highly porous surface, since the degree CE the orientation (deposition) of lead and silver zinc is about 95% within the first 30 seconds there is virtually instantaneous and improve its quality due to the purity of the source materials. Thus, the distinctive features are essential and necessary to solve the task.

For the preparation of the chloride solution of chloride of silver, where silver is in the form of stable soluble chloride complexes may be used in any silver salt. Dissolution in concentrated chloride solution will occur due to the exchange reaction:

CaCl2+Ag2SO4=CaSO4+2AgCl

CaCl2+2AgNO3=CA(NO3)2+2AgCl etc.

However, it is preferable to introduce the silver svezheosazhdennoi of silver chloride (AgCl).

As sources of silver to obtain a silver sponge can be used silver alloys and pure silver. In this case, a metal alloy or silver dissolved in nitric acid, the resulting solution was gradually added a solution of any chloride (NaCl, KCl, CaCl2and others) to complete precipitation of silver chloride. Svezheosazhdennoi silver chloride is separated from the solution and then dissolved in concentrated chloride solution (e.g. a solution of calcium chloride (CaCl2) or zinc chloride (ZnCl2due to the complex formation:

AgCl+CaCl2=Ca[AgCl3]

The use of the Finance solutions CaCl 2and furthermore solutions ZnCl2for the dissolution of AgCl is much preferred solutions of NaCl and KCl, as it allows to reach in a solution of greater concentration of the chloride ions and hence to achieve much higher solubility of silver chloride.

To implement the proposed method to obtain silver sponge, you need to take pre-heated to a temperature of 60With a solution of calcium chloride or zinc chloride with pH 1-0, must be dissolved in this solution of a silver salt such as silver chloride. The solubility of salt is calculated [Mathis L. Introduction to chemical equilibrium and kinetics. M.: Mir, 1984. - 484 C.]. Then add to a solution of a lead salt such as the chloride of lead (PbCl2) so that the amount of lead in the solution was equal to the amount of dissolved silver (in moles) and spend the deposition Svencioneliai sponge. What in the solution at a temperature of 60C to introduce 2-3 reception repolimerizovanny in hot 1% HCl zinc powder (W/T=5-20), taken with a 20% excess for the deposition of silver and lead. The resulting lead-silver sponge must be separated from the solution, rinse with hot acidified water and dissolve the lead sponge in concentrated HCl when heated. As a result of dissolution of lead will remain pure silver sponge. The rate of feed of activated zinc dependence of Olena more complete and effective deposition of silver on the new, newly formed surface of the lead sponge. Despite the fact that normal, fused lead is dissolved in HCl slowly enough, the dissolution of lead sponge takes a few minutes for the optimization of this process it is necessary to use concentrated HCl as the acid, the higher the solubility of the resulting PbCl2.

The solution is cooled to a temperature of 60C, and thereafter the deposition of lead-silver sponge, for which it is entered 3 times, 15 g of zinc dust, pre-reportprovides in 100 ml of 1% HCl at a temperature of 80C. the Resulting lead-silver sponge filtered, washed with 1% hot HCl and heated in 1000 ml of 39% HCl to dissolve lead. The resulting silver sponge is separated from the solution, washed first net 39% HCl and then with distilled water and dried. Micrograph of a sample of silver sponge, obtained from the chloride of zinc solution, presented in figure 1 Century

Example 3

1.0 g of a silver alloy containing silver is 87.5% is dissolved in 10 ml of a solution of HNO3(63%), heated to 50-60C, the resulting solution is added 200 ml of water, 5 ml of 10% NaCl solution, 5 ml of 1% solution of polyacrylamide, the solution was heated and boiled for 5 minutes, then cooled to 20C. and filtered the resulting silver chloride. The resulting silver chloride is dissolved in 1 DM3calcium chloride solution with a content of CaCl23.4 M and a pH of 1.0 (when otbelennogo analogously to example 1) when heated to 108C. then in the same solution dissolves when heated and 2.26 g of the chloride of lead (PbCl2). The solution is cooled to a temperature of 60C, and thereafter the deposition of lead-silver sponge, for which it is entered in 2 doses of 1.0 g of zinc dust, pre-reportprovides in 30 ml of 1% HCl at a temperature of 80C.

The resulting lead-silver sponge filtered, washed with 1% hot HCl and heated in 100 ml of 39% HCl to dissolve lead. Received silver sponge is separated from the solution, washed first net 39% HCl and then with distilled water. Such washing is necessary to first dissolved in HCl soluble in water chlorides: AgCl, CuCl, PbCl2and others, and the final rinsing in clear water allows you to remove water soluble impurities and residues from the HCl. Comparative results of the examples presented in the table.

As the table shows, the use of chloride-zinc solutions can be obtained from 1 DM3almost 10 times more silver sponge than in the case of application of calcium chloride solutions. Marginal density of the samples due to their high porosity (so, the usual silver has (at 20C) density of 10.50 g/cm3), which fully meets the task - getting the silver sponge with the stable-highly porous surface. Micrograph obtained sponges are presented in figure 1. From the table and figure 1 shows that as in the case of chloride-zinc solutions, and in the case of calcium chloride solutions, the size of the microparticles sponge consistently the same for this type of solution. In addition, the direct receipt of lead-silver jaws contact electrolysis (by precipitation with zinc) is about 5 minutes, that allows significantly intensify this process compared with the electrolytic method used in the prototype, as usual e is Stralis can last hours or even days.

The acceleration of the process of obtaining silver sponge by reducing the deposition time of the sponge with the stable-highly porous surface is achieved by cementation (deposition) of lead and silver in zinc, which occurs at the level of 95% within the first 30 seconds, which is almost instantly.
