    Abstract: The works reported in this paper deal with the effects of the electrodeposition potential on the morphology, the nucleation, and the crystallographic features of the nickel electrodeposited from a Watts-type bath. For this purpose, coatings electrodeposited at five different deposition potentials from –0.60 V/Ag/AgCl to –0.80 V/Ag/AgCl were investi... Show More

    Abstract: The present work aims to increase the value of cassava peelings by its transformation in activated carbon. The activated carbon was prepared by chemical activation using 40% of phosphoric acid solution as activation agent with an impregnation rate equal to 1.5 g of acid/g of precursor. The carbonization was carried out at 400°C for 90 minutes. Bohe... Show More

    Abstract: The corrosion inhibitive effect of Urena lobata leaves extract on mild steel in 1M HCl solution was investigated via gravimetric, Electrochemical and Surface analyses. Adsorption isotherms were investigated using the Langmuir and Freundlich plots. Phytochemicals of the extract were investigated using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometric (GC-MS) te... Show More
