Electrodeposition of chromium from low concentration chromjum (III) sulfate complexess in aqueous using sodium formate-glycine mixtures as a complexing agent was studied. In the bath formation, it is found that the optimum again temperature and time for equilibration of the electrolytes are nrcessary for 24 hrs at 45$^{circ}C$and the optimum elecrical charge for low current electrolysis which might be produced Cr(II) ions in the electrolytes is necessary for minum 2Ah/$ell$. The optmun concentration off standard electrolyte for main composition is 0.05M chromium(III) sulfate, 0.2M sodium formate-0.2M glycine, and I mMNaSCN as a catalysea, respectivwly. The standard electrolyte is shows good covering, good throwing power, and 6% of current efficiency (Cr(III)basis). The oppearance of electrodeposits shows att active bright chromium. The SEM morphology of the chromjum coating is observed as smooth surfaces and dispersed micro prcro pores. X-ray diffraction analysis shows a bcc structure which the perferred orintation of the chromium electrodeposits is strongin(200)plane.
