General Reaction List 
All,There seems to be a lot of confusion on the various acid mixtures used in the differentreactions. I've put together this quick list of reaction mixes. I know it's incomplete so I'll beadding to this list soon.Here's a quick reaction list:1. AR= Aqua Regia = 1 part 70% Nitric Acid, 3 parts Muriatic Acid (some guys use 4parts muriatic). Used to dissolve high karat gold, gold powder, gold foils, dissolvesPlatinum when hot. Excess nitric must be neutralized with Urea to pH 1 +/- 0.4, thendrop gold with SMB.
o
Hoke states 4 fluid ounces HCl + 1 fluid ounce HNO3 dissolves 1 troy ouncegold. This is equivalent to 31 mL HCl + 8 mL HNO3 per gram of gold.2. AR Recipie 2= Poor Man's AR = 8 oz Sodium Nitrate, 480 ml water, 960 ml MuriaticAcid plus heat. Used to dissolve high karat gold, gold powder, gold foils, dissolvesPlatinum when hot. Excess nitric must be neutralized with Urea to pH 1 +/- 0.4, thendrop gold with SMB.
o
The above mentioned recipie makes enough AR to dissolve 160 gm Pins or 32oz of ceramic cpus.

 3. HCl-Cl= Clorox Method = 4 Parts Muriatic, 1 Part Clorox (added in small increments).Used to dissolve gold foils and powder. Drop gold with SMB, NO urea needed.4. AP= Acid Peroxide = 2 Parts Muriatic Acid, 1 Part 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. Dissolvesbase metals, slowly dissolves gold when heated. If gold is present drop with SMB, NOurea needed.
