0] is the chloride concentration in the catholyte solution.
The alkaline solution (alkaline EO water) is produced at the cathode when the saline water dissociates into hydroxyl ions due to the strong electropositive nature of the Na+ ions, which later bind with sodium to form sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and hydrogen (H2) gas, and hence is called the catholyte.
A reagent that serves as both anolyte and catholyte in diaphramless coulometers is also available, as are stable non-hygroscopic titrants.
A polyacrylamide gel (250 x 120 x 1 mm; 5% T, 3% C; 50 g/L sucrose, 50 mL/L Servalyt 2-4, 50 mL/L Servalyt 4-6, 7 mol/L urea) was prefocused for 30 min at 250 V and 8[degrees]C, with 50 mL/L Servalyt 6-8 as the catholyte and 0.
In nickel electrowinning from chloride electrolytes the use of an ion exchange membrane between an impure anolyte and catholyte offers the opportunity to produce a nickel product low in impurities which form anionic complexes.
15] Prototype experiments using a [Beta]-alumina diaphragm to act as a selective, sodium-permeable membrane, which separates a redhot sodium chloride melt anolyte from the near 100% sodium hydroxide catholyte, promise to further change the fundamental operating characteristics of future commercial chloralkali cells.
ECAT-O&G uses a patented cell membrane to convert H2O and NaCL into anolyte and catholyte components," said George Sanford, founder of UBS.
Tenders are invited for Supply of Frp catholyte tank.
The demineralized water added to the catholyte circuit is hydrolysed, releasing hydrogen gas and hydroxide ions.
0 M sulphuric acid was used as catholyte (Table 1).
