Abstract

The electrochemical deposition of zinc coatings from 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ([BMIM]Cl) baths on steel substrate was described in this paper. The influence of [ZnCl2]/[BMIMCl] ratio, current density as well as temperature have been investigated. It was found that electrodeposition in all of tested baths and parameters allowed to obtain zinc coatings. The surface of coatings were matte and in the most of cases the coating morphology was not homogenous. On the basis of corrosion investigation it was pointed out that application of the baths of higher ZnCl2 content are more beneficial for zinc coatings electrodeposition that the one of [ZnCl2]/[BMIMCl]= 2:3.
