Abstract:

Information on the zinc electrode processes has been obtained by measuring the overvoltage for the zincate reaction and the limiting current density. This was done both anodically and cathodically. The variables studied were KOH concentration, zincate concentration, and analgamation of the zinc electrode. Measurements of the differential double layer capacitance have also been made, and the effects of amalgamation and the presence of surfactants have been noted. Solubilities of zinc oxide in KOH solutions are reported for 25 and 15 C. Author
