Abstract

The effect of the addition of arsenic on hydrogen evolution on titanium in acid solution was investigated. The hydrogen uptake of the metal increased with increasing arsenic concentration, and the Tafel slope of cathodic polarization changed from 110 to 170 mV decade−1. A mechanism which explains these phenomena is proposed.
