Abstract

The potential of Cocos nucifera (CJ)-tin functionalized oxide p repared in sulphate bath on zinc based electrolyte was examined in an attempt to improve the structural behaviour and examined the microhardness characteristics of the developed coatings. The microstructural evolution was checked using scanning electron m icroscope attached with energy dispersive spectrometer (SEM- EDS). The microhardness properties of the composites were inves tigated by means of high impact diamond base microhardness indenter with an average of 5 relative intervals. The results s how a film containing Zn-SnO2-CJ deposits on the mild steel resulting into strong crystal structure. The effect of Cocos nu cifera-tin functionalized oxide as complex agent was noticed to improve the structura l build up, strong comp actness and decreas e porosity
