Catalytic formation of hydrogen in electrolysis of chromium(II) chloride
- 40 Downloads
It was determined that in the electrolysis of chromium(II) chloride the electrodeposits containing chromium and chromium(II) oxide which are formed on the cathode surface accelerate catalytically the reaction Cr2++H+ Cr3++1/2 H2. As a result of superposition of the chemical reaction on the electrochemical process the absolute hydrogen yield in the electrolysis reaches 3500–4500%.
