At the positive plate, sulfate ions and hydrogen ions in the electrolyte, and the free electrons in solution, react with lead dioxide molecules, forming lead sulfate and releasing two water molecules into the electrolyte solution.
The result of these two reactions is an electron deficit (a positive charge) at the lead dioxide plate and an electron excess (a negative charge) at the lead plate.

The investigations suggest that the stability and activity of the lead dioxide
anode is influenced by the presence of Ce+3 / Ce+4 ions in the lead dioxide
