• ### Current and future uses of gold in electronics

· Gold alloys Used for electrical contacts and applied by cladding. Dilution of gold reduces costs but the conductivity is not as high as pure gold. Alloys have good corrosion resistance. Copper and its alloys Clean unoxidised copper has very good conductivity but oxidation and corrosion can occur rapidly giving an insulating oxide coating.
