As a noble metal, Iridium finds many applications in the industry. Electrodeposited iridium, as a thin coating, provides a cheaper method of using the metal wherever possible. Iridium and platinum-iridium alloy are used in industrial water electrolysis as anodes because of their low oxygen overpotential. Of all the baths available for electrodepositing iridium, the bromide electrolyte appears to be the best. Different method of preparing the bromide electrolyte are compared: the one prepared using iridium chloride gives improved performance with respect to stability, current efficiency, higher deposit thickness, and appearance of the deposits, besides its cost effectiveness
