Surface bubbles in electrolysis
Project Description: In electrochemical reactions where a gas is produced, we encounter bubbles growing on the electrode surface. This partially blocks the reaction surface, increases the overall resistance of the electrochemical cell, and leads to a drop in the current.
The aim of the project is to
- Understand the dynamics of these electrochemically generated bubble: their nucleation, growth and detachment.
- Look for ways to limit bubble growth on the electrode surface
