Effect of Sodium Hypophosphite Content in the Electroplating Bath on the Electrochemical Properties of Ni-P Alloy Coatings

Article Preview

Porous Ni-P alloy coatings were prepared by galvanostatic electrodeposition at the deposition current density of jdep = -250 mA cm-2 from the nickel plating bath of the Watts type containing different content of sodium hypophosphite. Investigations of hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) were carried out in 5 M KOH solution at room temperature. Ac impedance behavior of the electrodes was described using electrical equivalent circuits containing two constant-phase elements (two-CPEs electrode model). The results obtained from the EIS and steady-state measurements allowed to determine the Volmer-Heyrovský mechanism and kinetics of the HER. It was found that for the Ni-P alloy coatings deposited from the galvanic baths after addition of sodium hypophosphite in the amount of 5, 10, 20 and 30 g dm-3, the decrease in their catalytic activity towards the HER is observed due to diminishing of intrinsic activity of the electrodes.
