An Introduction to Fundamental Research on the Mechanism of the Electrodeposition of Metals

From time to time, it has been our intent to present seminal papers from past issues of NASF/AESF journals that are of such significance that, decades later, they bear another look.  As Einstein is associated with relativity, Drs. Conway and Bockris are synonymous with theoretical electrochemistry.  This paper is in large measure, the result of Project #16, and, as the authors modestly describe it, is “an attempt to describe to the electroplater who understands the basic ideas of electrochemistry, what is being done in research on fundamental electrode processes.”  This “attempt” did rather well.
