Electrodeposition of nickel is largely carried out as an undercoat in decorative nickel-chromium plating. During the process of nickel plating, the solution pH tends to rise because of depletion of hydrogen ions due to hydrogen evolution from the layer of solution surrounding the cathode. It thus becomes necessary to maintain the pH of the plating solution within the appropriate range for ensuring production of deposits with desirable properties. In this paper the authors report the effects of certain buffering ingredients, namely acetate, citrate, succinate and tartrate salts in nickel plating solutions. The experimental results point to the suitability of acetate as a superior buffering agent for a nickel plating bath
