Title

Anodic Dissolution of Zn in Aqueous Salt Solutions

Abstract

The anodic dissolution of Zn has been studied in aqueous solutions containing Cl -, Br -, I -, Ac -, SO 4 2- and NO 3 -. An apparent deviation from Faraday's law was found in NO 3 - solutions which was a function of NO 3 - concentration, c.d. and temperature. The deviations (in terms of an apparent valency) were correlated using an equation derived previously for Cd in which the mode of dissolution was described as the normal (faradaic) anodic process accompanied by local corrosion and surface disintegration. The normal anodic process was also found to be consistent with the mechanism proposed previously for Cd. © 1971 Pergamon Press Ltd.
