Electroreduction of Mo(VI) Compounds in Ammonium–Acetate Solutions
- 1 Downloads
The kinetics of cathodic reactions in ammonium acetate solutions proposed for electrodeposition of metallic molybdenum was studied. The reduction of molybdenum compounds in the oxidation state +6 was found to occur stepwise according to the scheme Mo(VI) → Mo(V) → Mo(III). The waves observed on the polarograms are complicated by adsorption effects. The reduction of molybdenum to the metallic state is possible only at high negative potentials of the cathode; under the polarographic analysis conditions, this wave was not recorded. The deposit that formed on the surface of the solid cathode during cathodic polarization (i = 0.5 A cm–2) contains both molybdenum in the metallic state and molybdenum oxides. The ratio between the electrolysis products depends on the temperature of solution: a decrease in the temperature leads to an increase in the amount of metallic molybdenum.
