Hi, Kashif. Try to get access to a couple of electroplating books such as the Metal Finishing Guidebook and the Electroplating Engineering Handbook. These will have some information on formulations. Note that you cannot plate directly onto steel or iron from a copper sulphate (or copper fluoborate) bath. You will need to either nickel plate first, or to use a cyanide-based or pyrophosphate-based copper plating bath. I'm not sure you will be able to find enough formulation information about copper pyrophosphate in the plating textbooks because most successful formulations are proprietary rather than generic. This would limit you to cyanide-based processes, so you should thoroughly investigate the hazards and downsides of cyanide before proceeding. Good luck.
