|Abstract||Chromium electrodeposition is nowadays considered as one of the most imporomt electrodeposition processes. Chrome deposits are used both for decorative and for functional applications. A thin, hlue-tinged chrome deposit is normally applied on nickel undercoats in the decorative nickel-chromium finish. Such nickel-chromium decorative finishes are applied on a number of decorative articles like cycle components, automobile components, household articles, office furnitures, etc. In industry a thick chromium deposit is used as hard chromium and is used to coat on a numher of components which are resistant to wear and tear. The high hardness of chromium resists wear and tear and improves the service life of the components. Such an industrially important chromium is normally deposited from conventional chrome hath consisting of 250 g l chromic acid and 2.5 g l sulphuric acid and operated at 323 K and at a current density of 15.5 and 46.5 A dm2• Chromium is deposited from hexavalent chromium using insoluble anodes. However, during the normal working of the bath, there is a gradual increase in Cr3+ concentration in the hath due to the incomplete oxidation of Cr3 + and Cr6+ at the anode. Buildup of Iron(III) in chrome bath occurs in a number of ways. They are a) carry over from previous operations due to poor washing of the components d) dissolution of substrate when jobs are allowed to be in chrome bath without current, c) due to anudic etching from the plating bath itself and d) etching of fallen articles remaining in the hath. Thus the entry of Cr3+ and Fe3+ are inevitahle in the chromium bath. In order to study tbe effect of iron and trivalent chromium in the production of chrome deposit the study was undertaken and the results on the nature of the deposit, current efficiency, rate of build up, hardness and porosity are presented in this paper.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
