Kinetics of nickel particles nucleation and growth from the serine-containing electrolyte was studied by cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometry. It was shown, that the initial stage of nickel electrodeposition onto a polycrystalline copper electrode conforms to instantaneous nucleation mechanism. Main parameters of nucleation process (diffusion coefficients, number of active sites, nucleation rate, formation work of critical cluster and its size) were calculated. Partial curves of nickel deposition and hydrogen evolution were obtained.
