In this paper a reaction-diffusion system modelling metal growth processes is considered, to investigate - within the electrodeposition context- the formation of morphological patterns in a finite two-dimensional spatial domain. Nonlinear dynamics of the system is studied from both the analytical and numerical points of view. Phase-space analysis is provided and initiation of spatial patterns induced by diffusion is shown to occur in a suitable region of the parameter space. Investigations aimed at establishing the role of some relevant chemical parameters on stability and selection of solutions are also provided. By the numerical approximation of the equations, simulations are presented which turn out to be in good agreement with experiments for the electrodeposition of Au-Cu and Au-Cu-Cd alloys.
