Part of the Comprehensive Treatise of Electrochemistry book series (volume 2)


In one of the earliest textbooks for the electroplater (Der Galvanotechniker,M. Zapfe, Leipzig, 1911) one can read: “in electroplating, theory and practical applications are closely interconnected. Theory possesses such an overwhelming importance as rarely in an artistic trade or if one prefers in a trade art.” This touch of an artistic trade was, for a long time, connected with practical electroplating, and only in the last 50 years has it moved to a modern industrial production process, which is applied to a wide range of products.
