This study involved the use of a flow circulation cell, using varying circulation rates as a room temperature process (20°C). Mössbauer and XRD analysis were conducted to ascertain whether amorphous or microcrystalline structures could be obtained at 20°C using a range of current densities. Amorphous or microcrystalline structures of Sn–Fe and Sn–Co–Fe have potentially important industrial applications for energy efficient cells, for use as high performance electrodes in lithium batteries, as environmentally acceptable corrosion resistant materials and are derived from an energy efficient environmentally friendly electrolyte process which would be acceptable as an industrial process.
