The kinetics of zinc electrodeposition on steel from alkaline tartrate bath was studied as a function of tartrate, sodium hydroxide and zinc ion concentrations. The rate of build up of the zinc deposition was found to obey the equation v = rate of build up = k (Zn2+{6 (OU-{S (tartrate)1.5. Additions of furfuraldehyde to the bath inhibited the rate of build up and the inhibition was due to adsorption of furfuraldehyde molecules on the growth sites of the zinc nucleus and controlled its growth. This inhibition decreased with current density. The hydrogen evolution reaction was favoured by furfuraldehyde.
