Analysis of Multiple Reaction Sequences in Flow-Through Porous Electrodes

Richard Alkire, Ronald Gould

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The role of multiple reactions in flow-through porous electrodes has been investigated theoretically. The reaction sequences studied include simultaneous deposition of several metals, deposition 01 a metal in the presence of a redox system, and an ECE sequence which is characteristic of many electro-organic synthesis reactions. The model accounts for mass transport, multiple charge transfer reactions, homogeneous chemical reactions, ohmic and geometric parameters. Results are compiled in a series of graphs which elucidate electrode behavior over a wide region of parameter space.
