The electro-deposition of platinum on
mild steel and nimonic alloys substrates using more than
twenty baths have been investigated. It has been shown
that the cell efficiency can be improved markedly with
lower current density, pH value and plating temperature.
Distinct differences between direct and pulsed processes
revealed themselves in the cathode current efficiency
data. Implications of using pulse plating to control the
quality of electrodeposits have been considered. [Continues.]
