CHEM - Electrolysis
Chemistry, electrolysis, half equation - IGCSE | IBDP | DSE | GCE | AP Chemistry
Ionic compounds can be decomposed when an electric current is passed through it. This process is called electrolysis.
For electrolysis to happen, the ionic compound must be able to conduct electricity.
👇 For IGCSE Chemistry, you need to understand what happens during electrolysis 👇
Electrolysis of Molten Ionic Compound
Electrolysis of Aqueous Ionic Compound
Electrolysis of aqueous ionic compounds can be complicated because water can provide H+ and OH- ions in addition to the ions provided by the ionic compound.
During the electrolysis of aqueous sodium sulfate:
