We must, therefore, learn something about the subject of electrolysis.
The metals were first prepared by Davy in 1808 by electrolysis.
The preparation of fluorine was finally accomplished by the French chemist Moissan by the electrolysis of hydrofluoric acid.
This is melted in an iron pot which also serves as the cathode in the electrolysis.
The electrolysis is carried out at a temperature of 70 C., and a current density of one ampre per square decimetre is used.
What metals and compounds studied are prepared by electrolysis?
electrolysis is the name of the process by which fluid chemicals are decomposed by the current.
This method may not be a cure for electrolysis, but will add to the life of the pipe.
The apparatus is immersed during the electrolysis in a bath of liquid methyl chloride, maintained in tranquil ebullition at -23.
It was a process by electrolysis, well understood by all electricians.
electrolysis e·lec·trol·y·sis (ĭ-lěk-trŏl'ĭ-sĭs, ē'lěk-)
Chemical change, especially decomposition, that is produced in an electrolyte by an electric current.
Destruction of living tissue, especially that of the hair roots, by means of an electric current applied with a needle-shaped electrode.
A process in which a chemical change, especially decomposition, is brought about by passing an electric current through a solution of electrolytes so that the electrolyte's ions move toward the negative and positive electrodes and react with them. If negative ions move toward the anode, they lose electrons and become neutral, resulting in an oxidation reaction. This also happens if atoms of the anode lose electrons and go into the electrolyte solution as positive ions. If positive ions move toward the cathode and gain electrons, becoming neutral, a reduction reaction takes place. Electrolysis is used for many purposes, including the extraction of metals from ores, the cleaning of archaeological artifacts, and the coating of materials with thin layers of metal (electroplating).
