Caption

Electroplating apparatus. Historical illustration of objects being coated in nickel by a process of electroplating. Electroplating involves using an electric current to deposit a metal on an object that is used as an electrode in an electrolysis circuit. Early applications of this technique included gold, silver, copper, nickel, brass, tin, and zinc. Electroplating can be decorative as shown here (cutlery and jewellery), or applied on an industrial scale. Artwork from 'Electricite' (1911) by Max de Nansouty, part of the 'Les merveilles de la science' series of 1867-1891 by Louis Figuier.
