In a 2010 study, researchers at the Institute's Mumbai Department of Chemical Engineering used high-tech equipment to examine commercially sold, metal-based homeopathic remedies: Zincum, Aurum, Stannum, Cuprum, Argentum, and Platinum in 6c, 30c, and 200c potencies.
Hoc modo aurichalcum dicitur falsum aurum, non propter solam disconvenientiam, quam habet cum vera idea, vel conceptus auri; majorem enim habet plumbum, vel stannum, quae non denominantur falsum aurum; igitur propter similitudinem et speciem auri, quam gerit, ratione cujus facile existimatur esse aurum.
As a result a difficult for the hot lead plating units task of ensuring quality adhesion of a coating from the Pb-Sn melt to steel base was solved, it became possible to reduce content of stannum in the alloy from 15 to 8 %, more uniform fine crystalline structure of the alloy with minimal amount of pinholes was achieved, and duration of etching was reduced from 45 to 3-5 s.
