It would be difficult to overstate the importance of electrochemical deposition to science and technology in the late twentieth century. If not for modern electrochemical deposition methods developed over the past decade and a half, many of today's technological wonders simply would never have been. From computer hardware to automobiles, medical diagnostics to aerospace, electrochemical deposition now plays a crucial role in an array of key industries. And, if the recent shift from physical to electrochemical techniques in microcircuit manufacturing is any indication, its importance will only continue to grow in the years ahead. This book offers a wide-ranging, authoritative look at state-of-the-art electrochemical deposition theory and practice. Written by an author team with extensive experience in both industry and academe, it provides a well-rounded introduction to the field for students, as well as a means for professional chemists, engineers, and technicians to expand and sharpen their skills in using the technology. Over the course of 18 independent chapters, Drs. Paunovic and Schlesinger present detailed coverage of the full range of electrochemical deposition processes and technologies, including: * Metal-solution interphase * Charge transfer across an interphase * Formation of an equilibrium electrode potential * Nucleation and growth of thin films * Kinetics and mechanisms of electrodeposition * Electroless deposition * In situ characterization of deposition processes * Structure and properties of deposits * Multilayered and composite thin films * Interdiffusion in thin film. Fundamentals of Electrochemical Deposition is an ideal graduate-level textbook for students of electrochemistry and related areas. It is also an indispensable working resource for all professionals who use this technology, including platers and metal finishers. Fundamentals of Electrochemical Deposition is a comprehensive introduction to one of today's most exciting and rapidly evolving fields of practical knowledge. With the help of examples drawn from a wide range of areas, the authors describe the science and technology behind all electrodeposition methods currently used in industry. Emphasizing the practical concerns of professionals who use this technology, they provide detailed coverage of: * nIonic solutions, metal surfaces, and metal-solution interphases * Electrode potential, deposition kinetics, and thin film nucleation * Electroless and displacement type depositions * Effects of additives and the science and technology of alloy deposition * Current distribution during deposition * In situ and ex situ deposit characterization * Mathematical modeling in electrochemistry * Structure, properties of deposits, multilayers, and interdiffusion.

Unlike electroplating, electroless plating allows uniform deposits of coating materials over all surfaces, regardless of size, shape and electrical conductivity. Electroless copper and nickel-phosphorus deposits provide protective and functional coatings in industries as diverse as electronics, automotive, aerospace and chemical engineering. This book discusses the latest research in electroless depositions. After an introductory chapter, part one focuses on electroless copper depositions reviewing such areas as surface morphology and residual stress, modelling surface structure, adhesion strength of electroless copper deposit, electrical resistivity and applications of electroless copper deposits. Part two goes on to look at electroless nickel-phosphorus depositions with chapters on the crystallisation of nickel-phosphorus deposits, modelling the thermodynamics and kinetics of crystallisation of nickel-phosphorus deposits, artificial neural network (ANN) modelling of crystallisation temperatures, hardness evolution of nickel-phosphorus deposits and applications of electroless nickel-phosphorus plating. Written by leading experts in the field Electroless copper and nickel-phosphorus plating: Processing, characterisation and modelling is an invaluable guide for researchers studying electroless deposits or materials science as well as for those working in the chemical, oil and gas, automotive, electronics and aerospace industries.

As an instructor in various finishing courses, I have frequently made the statement over the years that "In the field of metal finishing there is very little black and white, just a great deal of grey. It is the purpose of the instructor to familiarize the student with the beacons that will guide him through this fog. " To a very considerable extent, a handbook such as this serves a similar purpose. It is also subject to similar limitations. Providing all the required information would result in a multi-volume encyclopedia rather than a usable handbook. In the pages that follow, you will therefore find frequent references to other sources where more detailed explanations or information can be found. The present goal is proper guidance and the provision ofthe most frequently required facts, not everything that is available. In the 13 years since the last edition, changes in the finishing industry have been profound but in one sense have resulted in simplifying matters rather than complicating them. Because technology has advanced to a level of complexity rendering "home brew" impracti cal in many cases, dependence on proprietary compounds has become common. Therefore, detailed solution compositions are often no longer significant or even practical. It is thus more important to provide instruction about the factors that affect the choice of the most suitable type of proprietary material.

Nickel and Chromium Plating, Second Edition, does not merely update the first edition but also places additional emphasis on certain methods that have achieved increased industrial use in the 14 years since the first edition was published. The book begins by tracing the history of nickel and chromium plating. This is followed by a discussion of the electrochemistry of electrodeposition from aqueous electrolyte solutions. Separate chapters cover topics such as autocatalytic (electroless) nickel deposition; nickel plating onto aluminum and other difficult substrates; plating onto plastics and high-speed plating; the deposition of various nickel alloys for decorative and functional applications; composite coatings; and tampon (brush) plating. This book will be helpful to those new to the plating industry; those experienced in the industry will find that this revised version enables them to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in this specialized technology.
