    • Abstract


      Electrodeposition of BaCO3 from aminecarboxylate stabilized-Ba(HCO3)2 baths, results in oriented crystallization when the bath conditions promote the decomposition of the Ba complex. Crystal growth is predominant along the 𝑐-crystallographic axis. The crystallites orient themselves with their 𝑐-axis normal to the substrate. The crystallites exhibit three-fold twinning (trilling) consequent to the evolution of the {110} planes as planes of reflection. Pairs of trillings are seen to grow about a four-sided polygon formed by the {010} crystal faces whose centre is a point of inversion.
