The present investigation deals with the electrodeposition of tin from chloride electrolytes. Gelatin, b-naphthol, polyethylene glycol, peptone and histidine were used as additives in the plating bath to improve the surface morphology, grain size, smoothness and corrosion resistance of the tin deposits. XRD data obtained for electrodeposited tin show polycrystalline nature with single b-phase and tetragonal structure. A uniform and pore free surface was observed under SEM analysis. AFM results indicate the grain refining brought about by the additives. Corrosion rate measurements using the Tafel extrapolation method and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy reveal the increased corrosion resistance from baths containing additives.
