ABSTRACT:

The initial stages of the electrocrystallization process occurring in potentiodynamic and galvanostatic conditions were considered under a single scheme. It was shown that the proposed theoretical models are in a good agreement with the experimental results obtained at electrodeposition of silver crystals on the iridium microelectrode from nitrate melt containing an excess of supporting electrolyte.
