Abstract

An experimental investigation has been made into the effectiveness of some tropical agricultural resources, sugar cane and cassava juices, as addition agents in the electrodeposition of zinc from an acid chloride bath. The electrodeposition of zinc on steel was performed by the partial immersion of the steel specimen and the zinc electrodes in plating solution using a DC supplier. While a fairly good zinc electrodeposition on mild steel substrate could be obtained in the acid zinc chloride solution, using either cassava juice or sugar cane juice alone, the synergistic effect of the two juices combined gives a far better result
