  • The electrodeposition of Cu --Cd alloys from CuSO/sub 4/--CdSO/sub 4/ electrolytes containing acetic or citric acid was studied. The beat electrolyte composition found contains (in q-equiv/l) CuSO/sub 4/, 0.2; CdSO/sub 4/, 0.5; citric acid, 1.0 and NH/sub 4/OH, 0.8. Electrolyte temperature 25 to 30 deg C and cathodic current density 0.25 to 0.75 A/dm/sup 2/ were optimal. (JRD)
  • The possibility of the electrolytic deposition of a nickel-indium alloy from an ammonium citrate electrolyte for purposes of increasing the cathode current output was investigated. The alloy antifriction coating was deposited in a rectangular glass bath of an electrolyte containing indium in the forms of a sulfate and a hydroxocitrate complex and nickel in the forms of mixed ammonium and citrate complexes as well as in sulfate form. The dependence of indium content and current output of the alloy on current density and indium sulfate concentration in the electrolyte was determined. Polarization curves for alloy precipitation established that indium precipitatedmore » at more negative potentials than nickel. The effect of indium content on microhardness was also assessed. An optimum electrolyte composition, pH value, and current density were established.« less
  • A metallurgically-produced palladium-indium alloy has a number of unique properties. If an ammoniacal tartrate electrolyte is used to precipitate a Pd-In alloy, in time a precipitate of indium hydroxide is formed, leading to changes in the composition of the electrolyte and deposited alloy. The authors investigate the possibility of producing the alloy electrolytically from an ammoniacal citrate electrolyte.
