The performance of a divided laboratory reactor, which utilises a 5.0 cm x 5.0 cm x 1.2 cm RVC cathode, is examined for copper removal from 0.5 M Na,SO, solutions at pH 2 under potentiostatic, mass transport controlled conditions. The practical values of k,A, (the product of averaged mass transfer coefficient and cathode area per unit electrode volume) are shown to depend upon the grade of RVC and the electrolyte velocity. The presence of dissolved oxygen decreases the current efficiency but the effect may be…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
