hi chemists, my chemistry is a bit rusty. i am doing some basic DIY zinc plating using a acid solution with some zinc sulfate in solution. basic recipe is like this: net 2L Epsom Salt 128 gram Zinc Sulfate 43 gram <-- use the ~99% pure stuff White Vinegar 85 ml Sugar 27 gram Tap Water 1915 ml does adding some nickel sulfate to the solution allow a mix of nickel and zinc ions to be deposited onto cathode (part)? this link (http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S0104-66322011000300013) provides good explanation of how adding nickel sulfate to the solution increases deposit rate of zinc for any given amps (thus better efficiency), but does the nickel also get deposited with the zinc. for me, having some nickel with zinc being deposited may help in my DIY application.
