If metal electrodes are coated with an insulator, what will happen during electroplating?

Asked by Topperlearning User 30th January 2014, 10:13 AM
Answered by Expert

No electroplating will take place as insulators will not appear as positive or negative electrodes to the ions in the solution. For electroplating to take place, the surface on which metal is to be deposited should be a good conductor (whether bulk is conducting or not has no effect).
