Abstract

Electrodeposition of Ni from acidic sulfate solution with/without the addition of boric acid was studied by electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) to further investigate the initial stage of Ni deposition. EQCM analysis showed that nickel hydroxide was formed due to the pH increase near the electrode caused by hydrogen evolution in the absence of boric acid. In the presence of boric acid, nickel hydride was formed. EQCM was found to be a useful in-situ tool for investigating the effects of the evolution and absorption of hydrogen on metal deposition and separating the charge used for Ni deposition and for hydrogen reduction.
