Variations in design are typically aimed at overcoming electrode polarization and low ion diffusion rates which reduce recovery rates in low concentration solutions. This is typically achieved by reducing the thickness of the diffusion layer through agitation of the solution or movement of the cathode. this study is shown in Fig. 1. The circuit board is mm thick. The holes connecting the board surface, which has a diameter of mm, were predeposited with mm electroless copper. Prior to plating, the substrate was cleaned with 5% H2SO4 for 1 min. The anode was made of phosphorus-depolarized copper. The cathode was kept quiescent.

An example is the diffusion layer at the cathode surface during electroplating of copper from a solution containing a small amount of copper chloride and a large concentration of sulfuric acid. All the current is carried by the ions of the sulfuric acid (hydrogen cations and sulfate anions) but the only possible electrode reaction is the. The activities of copper were found to be higher than the values reported by Hultgren et al. on the silver‐rich side, whereas they agree well in the high‐copper side. Values of, obtained by extrapolation of the data of this study to °K, agree well with those reported in literature.

  Diffusion of the ions through the layers controls the material transfer and the deposition rate according to the First Fick's law: Where: J - flux of the ions in x direction; C - ion concentration as a function of x (the distance from the cathode surface); D - diffusion coefficient of . At the onset of the diffusion limit- ed region (fig. 4), the deposition rate is controlled by the flux of nickel ions to the electrode surface. This flux in- creases with increasing velocity owing to a thinning of the diffusion layer and, thus, increases the range of cur- rent densities where nickel can be depo- sited.

Determine the analytical solutions for (a) water concentration on the cathode catalyst layer and (b) the oxygen concentration profile in the cathode diffusion layer.

(a) The water concentration in the cathode catalyst layer (CC) can be obtained combining Eqs. (), (), (), (), as follows: writing Eq.

This correlation is valid for hydrodynamically smooth rotating cylinder electrodes in turbulent flow: (11) δ N = U − d ν D where U is the peripheral velocity of the working electrode, d the diameter of the rotating cylinder electrode, ν the kinematic viscosity and D is the diffusion coefficient of copper ions.

Diffusion layer is a stagnant layer located very close to the working electrode surface. Inside this layer, only the varying concentration of metal ions is considered and the convection along the inclined.
