"The process of spontaneous reduction of the ions of a metal by another metal above it in the electromotive series. For example, a piece of iron immersed in copper sulfate solution will be immediately covered by a thin film of copper. The iron is being anodically dissolved while copper is electroplated on its surface cathodically. Also called ""metal displacement reaction."" "
