Nano-plating (III): Database of Plated Film Microstructures completes the trilogy of nanoplating books written by Tohru Watanabe. Nanoplating (I) covers microstructure formation theory of plated films, with Nanoplating (II) covering a metallurgical approach to electrochemical theory and its applications to technology. This third installment shows the relationship between composition and microstructure of 27 pure metals and 55 alloy plating films, including electrodeposition and electroless plating and provides a database of plated film microstructures. The book presents readers with an efficient reference work that helps optimize their syntheses in order to obtain specific deposit types.
