    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
