In chemistry and manufacturing, electrolysis is a technique that uses a direct electric current (DC) to drive an otherwise non-spontaneous chemical reaction. Electrolysis is commercially important as a stage in the separation of elements from naturally occurring sources such as ores using an electrolytic cell.The voltage that is needed for electrolysis to occur is called the decomposition ...

Chlorine - Chlorine - Production and use: Rock salt deposits are usually mined; occasionally water is pumped down, and brine, containing about 25 percent sodium chloride, is brought to the surface. When the brine is evaporated, impurities separate first and can be removed. In warm climates salt is obtained by evaporation of shallow seawater by the Sun, producing bay salt.

rently used fer calcium production in the United States (3). Calcium oxide and aluminum powder were briquetted and then retorted at 1,200° C under vacuum. Purity of the calcium metal was 98.8 pct, and the purity could be im­ proved to 99.5 pct by redistillation (4-7). The major im­ purity of the redistilled calcium was magnesium at 0.5 wt

Electrolysis refers to the decomposition of a substance by an electric current. The electrolysis of sodium and potassium hydroxides, first carried out in 1808 by Sir Humphrey Davey, led to the discovery of these two metallic elements and showed that these two hydroxides which had previously been considered un-decomposable and thus elements, were in fact compounds.

Significant current densities were obtained (above 100 mA cm −2) during electrolysis testing at relatively low metal loading, low cell voltages, and high cell efficiencies. These results point to ammonia electrolysis as a promising candidate for an alternative process for low-cost, low-temperature, high-purity hydrogen production.

Hydrogen production is the family of industrial methods for generating hydrogen gas. As of 2020, the majority of hydrogen (∼95%) is produced from fossil fuels by steam reforming of natural gas, partial oxidation of methane, and coal gasification. Other methods of hydrogen production include biomass gasification and electrolysis of water.

By SCA Community Engagement Fellow Hayden Sloan. Aluminum (or Aluminium, if you're not from the US) is an abundant element within Earth's surface— but getting it out of the ground is an arduous process, requiring heavy machinery to plow up acres and acres of land.Fortunately, the environmental impact of that process can be somewhat balanced out by post-mining rehabilitation, efficient ...
