In this paper the electrodeposition of nickel on n-Si(111):H substrate, in the presence of sulphuric acid, was studied. Cyclic voltammetry has been used to characterize the electrochemical behavior of the system. The nickel deposits had a flower-like morphology with the sphericalnanostructure nucleus, distributed uniformly on the surfaces of the prepared n-Si(111) substrate.
