What are the metals that can theoretically be plated?

Theoretically wet plating available metal is known more than 20 varieties.Dark gray is a metal that can be deposited in the electroless or electroplating. Light gray is a metal that can be deposited only in electroplating.

Metal that can be deposited in electroplating are only metal that have a low ionization tendency.In the case of base metal, the generation of hydrogen gas (electrolysis of water) takes precedence. Therefore, it will not be able to deposite the metal.

In the case of electroless plating, in order to continuously have a plating reaction occur, the precipitated metal itself must have a catalytic activity for the reducing agent. Therefore, the type of precipitation metal is limited compared to electroplating.
