The Anodic Dissolution of Thallium in H₂SO₄K₂SO₄ and HclO₄NaClO₄ Solution
The dissolution of thallium in acidic solutions (pH = 0.15-5.4) was studied. The results of anodic weight loss experiments show that the metal dissolves electrochemically with a valence of +1. Experiments involving total self-dissolution in acids with known weights of thallium show that the faradaic equivalent of the hydrogen evolved also corresponds to a valence of +1 for thallium. Galvanostatic and potentiostatic studies were made of the anodic behavior of thallium. A mechanism consistent with the behavior is : Tl(s) = Tl+(s)+e Tl+(s) rds Tl+(aq). © 1970.
