Electrodeposition of copper on Cu−Zr metallic glass substrates

This paper describes an investigation of the electrodeposition of copper on Cu−Zr metallic glass in the presence of 5-sulphosalicylic acid and 2-thiouracil. The observed morphological features and electrokinetic parameters are correlated, and suitable transport mechanisms are proposed with the help of infrared studies. It was observed that Cu−Zr metallic glasses enhance the rate of decomposition of hydrogen peroxide catalytically and electrocatalytically. This was attributed to the unusual structure of the substrate and physical or chemical inhomogeneities.
