Carbon-containing transition metal (Fe, Co, Ni) coatings are synthesized via chemical deposition with arabinogalactan. The crystal structure and chemical composition of the coatings are determined. Data from magnetometry and X-ray diffraction show that carbon is not included in the crystal lattice of a metal. Instead, it exists in the form of graphite inclusions. Degradation of arabinogalactan in an alkaline medium on the surface of a galvanic pair is investigated.
