Effects of current density,reaction temperature,electrolyte concentration and surfactant on the electrochemical deposition of micro-nanocrystalline iron were studied.Morphologies and structures of the samples were characterized by SEM and XRD,the results showed that the electrodeposits is slice α-Fe under little current and the density,lower temperature and higher concentration,and the dentritic α-Fe is under opposite conditions,but the influence from surfactant is unconsicously.Moreover,the growth mechanism of the electrodeposits was also analysed here.
