Size Effect in Electrochemical Properties of Nanostructured Coatings

  • Mahmood AliofkhazraeiEmail author
Part of the Engineering Materials book series (ENG.MAT.)


This chapter starts the discussion about size effect in electrochemical properties of nanocoatings and its real usage through different examples. It starts from thermodynamic equilibriums for nanostructured materials and goes through different reported papers in this field. Size effect in nanometric scale has been compared with larger scales by some examples. Detailed discussions about some methods (especially electrochemical deposition) with enough examples were presented in this chapter. Different parts of this chapter include discussions about thermodynamic equilibrium, classical nucleation theory, atomic nucleation theory, growth of 3-D nano-nucleuses, pulsed electrochemical deposition method and nanostructured coating properties.
