The mechanism of electrochemical deposition of nickel and zinc-nickel alloy was described as in actually
science literature. To prove practically the proposed mechanism, it was used as interesting effect which consists in an
increase of the deposited mass more than Faraday law predicts. Nickel was deposited and zinc-nickel alloy was codeposited
using a potentiostat-galvanostat Parstat 2273 coupled with an Electrochemical Quartz Crystal Microbalance
(EQCM). The mass distribution of deposited metal and alloy was monitored during the process, together with
electrochemical parameters (potential, current density, and temperature). The electrodeposited layers were characterized
with SEM-EDX techniques. A mathematical relation referring to the process was proposed in order to describe the
evolution of mass electrode versus time in the first step of the electrodeposition.
