Abstract

"Details concerning the anodic dissolution of many metals in various solutions are still unknown. Discrepancies are found between the actual weight-loss of an electrode and that calculated from coulometric data. The purpose of this investigation was to study the anodic dissolution of molybdenum (Mo) in basic solutions to determine the apparent valence of Mo ions going into solution, the nature of any surface films formed during dissolution, and the polarization behavior. Three electrolytes were used: 1 N potassium hydroxide (pH = 13.6), 0.667 N potassium carbonate (pH = 11.5), and potassium carbonate-potassium sulfate mixture (pH = 9.5). chloride ion additions were also made to determine their effect on both the current efficiency and the polarization behavior"--Introduction, page 1.
