Electrocatalytic properties of alloys deposited with superimposed magnetic field

Alloys exhibit very complex structures and properties, which crucially depend on their size, composition and chemical ordering, and which can, therefore, be tailored for specific and industrially relevant applications, as in data storage, optical devices and catalysis. Electrodeposition of alloys is in the forefront of research. The modulated structures are important because of their potential electrocatalytic properties. Deposition of active alloy cathodes for hydrogen evolution in a concentrated sodium hydroxide solution was attempted by an electrochemical method. The proper adjustment of the process of electrolysis plays a crucial role for the composition and structure of the deposited films, which determine their electrocatalytic properties.
