We present an electrochemical approach for depositing composites made of two insoluble inorganic materials, which cannot be obtained by the conventional electrochemical deposition from ionic speices. Applying a negative potential in an aqueous solution generates OH-, which simultaneously destabilizes dispersed nanomaterials, such as insoluble phosphates and sulfides and causes the deposition of a metal hydroxide from its dissolved ions.
