The effects of pyridine and its derivatives on current efficiency, surface morphology and crystallographic orientations of electrodeposited nickel from acidic sulfate solutions were investigated. The results indicated that the presence of pyridine and picolines had no significant effect on current efficiency. The deposits obtained were smoother, more compact and uniform with picolines than with pyridine. A significant change in surface morphology of the electrodeposits was observed and picolines were found to be better additives than pyridine, 4-picoline being the best. X-ray diffraction revealed that the (200) plane was the most preferred plane and was not affected by the presence of any of these additives in the electrolyte.
