The recent development of a more systematic, scientific basis for knowledge in electrodeposition technology is discussed, focussing on the influence of microstructure on deposit properties. Internal stresses, tensile strength, ductility, preferred orientation and the ability to electrodeposit amorphous materials are considered. In particular the unique influence on these properties of small quantities of chemical additives is discussed. The application of current modulation techniques during electrodeposition is described as an alternative means of controlling structure and properties.
