Cover Story (view full-size image): The incorporation of SiC nanoparticles (NPs) into the zinc matrix is proposed as a way to improve its mechanical and corrosion properties. In this work, Zn-SiC nanocomposites were successfully produced by both DC and PED electrodeposition. The most meaningful modification of the surface morphology, microstructure and composition of Zn-SiC layers was accomplished by the use of different types of surface active organic compounds. Ionic surfactants allow co-deposition of higher amounts of SiC NPs compared to non-ionic surfactants, which indicates that electrostatic forces may play a significant role in the codeposition of SiC NPs with Zn from aqueous citrate electrolytes.
