Title

The Anodic Dissolution of Pb in Aqueoussolutions

Abstract

The anodic dissolution of Pb has been studied in 1N solutions of KNO 3, NH 4C 2H 3O 2, and Pb(C 2H 3O 2) 2 at 25 and 50°C. The Pb removed from the electrode was found to be in excess of that calculated using Faraday's law assuming the normal valence of + 2. A black film on the electrode surface was identified as a mixture of Pb and PbO and its formation is explained as a result of “disintegration”. On the basis of polarization curves and other observed phenomena, a dissolution mechanism has been proposed. © 1968 Pergamon Press.
