Palladium deposition on rotational magnesium disk and magnesium powder via cementation has been investigated in 0.01 M PdCl2 solutions in dimethylformamide. The reduction process started from 323–333 K without the induction period. Spheroidal microparticles of palladium and its agglomerates were found to be formed on the magnesium disk surface. Particles in the form of needles and plates by the width of 80–120 nm were formed on the surface of magnesium powder. The deposited particles are characterized by high adhesion to the substrate surface.
