The anodic dissolution of cadmium in nitrate solution
"It is only relatively recently that the immensity of the problem of corrosion prevention has begun to be realized. In times when materials were plentiful, the problem did not seem so pressing. Now that a finite limit can be seen for the world's resources of metals, and the cost of finding, mining and extracting them has become ever more expensive, the problem of controlling the destructive processes of corrosion has become an urgent one. The basic mechanism of the anodic dissolution of metals such as cadmium, zinc, silver and magnesium in salt solutions is not completely known. Although several mechanisms have been proposed, there is a need for further experimental data of more quantitative nature. The purpose of this research was to obtain experimental data for the anodic dissolution of cadmium in various concentrations of aqueous nitrate solution as a function of current density and temperature, and to find a relationship as well as a mechanism in accord with the results"--Introduction, leaf 1.
