The most important applications of lead include the production of high purity active materials for acid battery, for semiconductors, and for the fabrication of electrochromic devices. In the form of powder, lead is widely used in industries of gas and oil exploration, radiological medical protective clothing, as an industrial X-ray shield, golf club manufacture, and antifriction products. The electrodeposition technique is a very suitable way to obtain lead in the form suitable for the application in the above-mentioned technologies. For example, the advantage of use of electrodeposition technique in the production of lead in the powder form lies in the fact that lead powder is produced at low overpotentials and hence with small spent of energy. The open porous structures of lead with the extremely high surface area (the honeycomb-like ones), which are ideally situated for electrodes in electrochemical devices such as fuel cells, batteries, and sensors, are also possible to get by the ...electrodeposition techniques.
