Electrochemical Deposition of Metallic Lead Particle Film
The preparation of metallic lead films by electrochemical deposition was reported. Although primary deposits at fresh state (also referred to as fresh deposits) were indeed metallic lead films, the fresh lead films could be rapidly oxidized to lead oxide in air. To obtain long stable metallic lead films, the key process is how to prevent the oxidization of fresh lead films. Our studies indicate that the washing of fresh metallic lead films in absolute alcohol is a simple but effective method to protect the lead films from the oxidization for an extended period of more than 20 days.
