Electrolytic baths for the electrodeposition of metals

Thanks to their high electrochemical stability, ionic liquids offer the possibility to deposit metals that cannot be in aqueous electrolytes while reducing environmental impacts (electrolytic baths without VOC, without cyanide...etc).

The deposits are often of better quality. In addition, by using hydrophobic ionic liquids, we avoid the production of hydrogen bubbles (due to the presence of water) which infiltrate into the metal, leave tiny holes when it evaporates and reduce the adherence of the deposit 1.

Ionic liquids are seen as an economic alternative to vacuum deposition techniques.
