Corrosion-Current Data for Nickel-Chromium Couples
When nickel electroplate is coupled with chromium, a high current density and corrosion rate at the anode, usually nickel, are favored by a high electrolyte concentration, a high temperature and a low nickel-to-chromium area ratio.

Growth of ZnO Nanorod Arrays on Flexible PDMS Substrates
In this work, well-aligned zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods were successfully deposited on flexible polydimethyl-siloxane (PDMS) substrates by a simple hydrothermal growth method. The low temperature (<100°C) synthesized ZnO nanorods were investigated by s...

Characterization of Electroless Deposition of Ni-P-Al2O3 and Ni-P-TiO2 from Alkaline Hypophosphite Baths in the Presence of Gluconate as a Complexing Agent
Electroless deposition of Ni-P-Al2O3 and Ni-P-TiO2, in the presence of gluconate as a complexing agent, on copper substrates was studied. The dependence of the composite formation on different plating variables was investigated. The deposited coatin...
