Abstract: 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…
