The influence of methane sulphonic acid, naphthalene sulphonic acid and phenol sulphonic acid on the electrodeposition of nickel from a citrate buffered nickel bath was investigated. Solution characteristics such as cathode efficiency and throwing power have been assessed, and corrosion resistance of the coatings was measured by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy method. The X-ray diffraction pattern obtained for electrodeposited nickel showed a polycrystalline fcc structure. A uniform and pinhole free surface was observed under SEM analysis
