Electrochemical transformations of [Fe.sub.3][O.sub.4] nanoparticles, carbon-coated nanoparticles, and iron nanoparticles coated with a layer of carbon and diazonium salts from the surface of the CPE under its cathodic and anodic polarization have been studied.
At the beginning of the experiment, the slope of cathodic polarization curve was larger than that of anodic polarization curve.
The electrochemical corrosion of amalgams with additions can be conveniently described by the schematic current--potential curves (The polarization curves) are shown in Figures (8-14) which illustrate cathodic and anodic polarization curves of the amalgams in synthetic saliva solution.
Sample PC also displayed a low rate of anodic current density rise, and resistance to high anodic polarization. The coating was observed to be intact following the polarization run, with no visual sign of damage.
Figure 6(i) shows the potentiodynamic anodic polarization of Ti[O.sub.2], B-Ti[O.sub.2], and B-Ti[O.sub.2]/rGO films with different rGO load, illuminated under visible radiation, in 1 mM phenol using 0.1 M HCl[O.sub.4] as supporting electrolyte.
The cathodic and anodic polarization curves for TNTA and Zn incorporated TNTA in Hank's solution were recorded at a sweep rate of 1 mV [s.sup.-1].
Figure 5 shows the anodic polarization curves for the AA6061 with and without the composite coating in a naturally aerated 3.5% NaCl solution.
Anodic Polarization. A 1mol/[dm.sup.3] solution of hydrazine monohydrate ([N.sub.2][H.sub.4]-[H.sub.2]O; 50.06 MW) was dissolved in 200 [dm.sup.3] distilled water, and 0.2 M sodium citrate dihydrate ([Na.sub.3][C.sub.6][H.sub.5][O.sub.7]*2[H.sub.2]O) was added to the solution.
They have been firstly degreased in an electrolytic degreasing bath (NaOH 30 g [L.sup.-1], [Na.sub.3]P[O.sub.4] 39.5 g[L.sup.-1], [Na.sub.2] C[O.sub.3] 30 g L-1, anionic surfactant 0.5 g [L.sup.-1], T = 60 + 90[degrees]C, and 6 A [dm.sup.-2] for 3 minutes in cathodic polarization and then for 1 minute in anodic polarization) [21].
