"The increasing demand for protective metals as coatings and non-corrosive alloys has stimulated extensive research on the fundamental behavior of metals in corrosive media.
One of the problems still unsolved is the nature of the mechanism of the anodic dissolution of metals like zinc, magnesium, beryllium, cadmium, and aluminum in aqueous salt solutions. Several schools of investigators have proposed different and opposing theories to explain the discrepancies which often arise between coulometric data and the weight loss of metal electrodes in certain salt solutions.
The purpose of this investigation was to obtain experimental data for the anodic dissolution of zinc in various electrolytes, namely potassium chloride, sulfate, and nitrate, and to arrive at a mechanism consistent with the results"--Introduction, page 1.
