Abstract : This invention relates to a low-temperature, electroless process for the plating of nickel metal upon a substrate. NIckel, olefin, and trifluorophosphine vapors are condensed and reacted in a vessel. The reaction product is distilled off and condensed onto the surface of a substrate. The surface is warmed and the reaction product allowed to decompose, yielding a coating of nickel metal upon the substrate, gaseous olefin and Ni(PF3)4.
