Structure and Microstructure of Electrodeposited Metals and Alloys



The physical, chemical and mechanical properties, and consequently the performance of electrodeposited metals and alloys usually differ from the reference data reported for the pure metallurgical samples. These variations are due to two main factors: the peculiarities in the structure and microstructure of electrodeposited materials and the presence of impurities . In the case of alloys, the discrepancy between the actual phase structure of the electrodeposit and the equilibrium phase diagram plays an important role as well.
