Abstract:

The applicability of Ficks law of diffusion to the diffusion of hydroxide and zincate ions through a cellophane membrane has been studied and verified. The effect of surfactants on the type of zinc deposit obtained when zinc is electroplated from a zincate solution has been studied over a range of current densities and zincate concentrations. These surfactants have also been incorporated in the zinc electrode. A few of these surfactants appear to improve the cycle life characteristics of the zinc electrode. However, when incorporated in the electrolyte they seem to afford no improvement in cycle life at higher current densities. The decomposition of Ag20 in KOH solutions has been followed and the effect of added materials on this process has been noted. Author
