Abstract:

Reaction profiles for the charging of porous silver electrodes in 1 N KCl are investigated. The effects of changes in the rate determining step on the reaction profile are calculated and compared with experiment for galvanostatically held superficial current densities of 2 to 25mAsq cm for 2 to 8 hours. Interpretations are given for the experimentally determined distributions of anodically formed silver chloride and for the morphology of the silver chloride deposits as observed with the scanning electron microscope as a function of distance into the porous structure.
