Abstract : The process of metal plating by catalytic chemical reduction is described on the basis of electrochemical thermodynamics, coordination chemistry, and catalysis. The primary and multiple roles of the metal ion, reductant, ligand, and catalytic substrate are discussed. A single mechanism is proposed for the heterogeneous catalysis reaction which is independent of reactant species or environmental conditions. (Author)
