The anodic behaviour of zinc in KOH solution. V: Galvanostatic polarization with an interruption

  • C. J. Bushrod
  • N. A. Hampson


Galvanostatic polarization experiments, in which the current flow is interrupted and re-established, show that the process of passivation is controlled by the transport of mass in the solution phase.
