Basics of electrolysis...


Recommended Posts

Hello all.

Never had it fully clear, voids in knowledge...    If a solution has -say all- the elements dissolved in water, and a direct electric current is passed in it;  what elements will deposit on the electrodes if the voltage is 0.1V ; if it is 0.2V; if it is 0.5V; ... ... ... if it is 1.0V ?

Can you cite examples for each voltage please, and which table tells it ?  Electronegativity ?  Electrochemical series ?  Standard electrode potentials ?
