The Process of Aluminum Anodizing

Aluminum anodizing is a surface hardening process in which electrolytic passivation is used to thicken the layer of oxide that naturally occurs on aluminum alloys. Used to increase corrosion and wear resistance, anodizing can be performed on a variety of metals, such as titanium anodizing; however, amongst anodizers, aluminum is typically the metal of choice … Read more

A Study on the Redox Potential of Metals

Lab Discussion Experiment 11: Oxidation-Reduction Electrochemistry In this experiment students have the opportunity to observe and measure the relative reduction potentials of various metals in order to have a better sense of comprehension of the topics associated with reaction spontaneity as well as reduction potentials. The objectives of this experiment were accomplished through the use … Read more
