THEORETICAL STUDY OF BIPOLAR POROUS ELECTRODES.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

When electrical current passes through a porous metal diaphragm, the potential gradient in the electrolyte can serve to derive an electrochemical reaction provided that reactive species are present. One portion of the metal will act as an anode while the remainder will act as a cathodeA one-dimensional model is presented for determining how the reaction rate distribution is affected by system parameters including charge-transfer, resistance of the diaphragm, diffusion of solute species, and forced convection through the diaphragm. The results are presented in a series of dimensionless figures.
