Tl containing CdSeHg films have been electrosynthesised at 0.600 V vs SCE on titanium substrate from the aqueous solution. Electrochemical properties of the films were investigated in ½I- redox solution. Films were found to be p-type conductivity with charge carrier level 1025. The carrier concentration and flat band potential of the film were determined from capacitance measurements. The films were characterized with scanning election microscopy (SEM) combined with energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDAX) system. The corrosion characteristics of the films have been studied by polarization technique. The inhibitor inhibits corrosion even in trace amount. This is the study to investigate the effect of thallium concentration on the composition, capacitance, photo activity, morphology and corrosion parameters of the CdHgSeTl films electrosyntesised by electrodeposition.
