Low Temperature Molten salts (LTMS) have a number of applications in metal finishing including electrolytic deposition and anodic processes like polishing and colouring. Imidazolium, pyridinium and choline based cations are normally used in LTMS [1-5]. Zinc deposition was carried out from imidazole - AlCl3 / ZnCl2 LTMS electrolyte at temperature < 100º C and the mole ratio was optimized in our research. Surface morphology of electrodeposited coatings was characterized by SEM and XRD. Cathodic and anodic current efficiencies of Imidazole – AlCl3 / ZnCl2 LTMS were evaluated.
