The interfacial interaction in Ni-ZrO2 composite plating prepared by composite electrodeposition has been investigated. The results showed that no new phases were formed at the interfacial regions between matrix Ni and ZrO2 particles, but the orbital interaction through the mutual overlap of the d orbits does exist in the interfacial regions between Ni atoms and Zr3+ ions.
