Manufacture of electrode of high electric conductivity


PURPOSE:To enhance electric conductivity without losing original useful properties, by using an electroless plating method to deposit an electroconductive metal layer on the surface of an active carbon fiber. CONSTITUTION:A phosphite, hydrazine, a hydrogenated boron compound, amine borane or the like is used as a chemical reducing agent for an electroless plating solution. Nickel, cobalt, copper, silver, gold, platinum, rhodium or the like is used as a plated metal. The ratio of the weight of a deposited electroconductive metal layer to that of an active carbon fiber is 3-100%. An electrode of high electric conductivity is thus manufactured.
