The preparation of surface gradients is a very hot topic in contemporary research. Among various physical chemistry approaches, bipolar electrochemistry allows the control of such gradients through the interfacial polarization between a conducting substrate and the electrolyte solution. Here, we report the straightforward single-step generation of metal composition gradients on cylindrical carbon fibers. The screening of different metal deposit morphologies which evolve gradually along a bipolar electrode is demonstrated with monometallic layers and also a bimetallic composite layer based on copper and nickel.
