A few commentsEdit

  • Deficiency needs an article on the Simple English Witktionary.   Not done I do not have Internet access to wiktionary.   Done received temporary access and created it
  • Flotation should have an article here.   Done creating the article
  • Galvanizing is linked to this wiki in the lead, but is linked to the Wiktionary in the Uses section.   Done
  • Most of the sentences in the lead could be combined together.   Not done I don't want this to be too complicated. People might have a hard time grasping two thoughts in one sentence.   Done merged sentences whether complicated or not
  • It is also used in motorboats[20] and pipelines to slow rusting. Reference link should be at the end of the sentence.   Done
  • The preparation section could be expanded.   Done expanded a little and removed disambig link
  • The second reference, Some sources do not consider 70Zn to be radioactive. Who?   Done removed reference added by Eptalon
  • Reference thirty-four needs to be in {{citation}} or {{cite web}} format.  Done
  • I'm confused on references ten and thirty-two. What are they referencing to? Response: They use the {{Harvard citation no brackets}} template, which I don't thoroughly understand. I think the first one is the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics and the second one is another book that I've never heard of. The possible reason for this template is because these books are very commonly cited so they deserve their own template. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 23:21, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
