The Effect Of Germanium On The Current Efficiency In The Electrolysis Of Pure Zinc Sulfate Solution, Keith R. Bock May 1953

The Effect Of Germanium On The Current Efficiency In The Electrolysis Of Pure Zinc Sulfate Solution, Keith R. Bock

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

It has long been recognized that electrolytic zinc cells are extremely sensitive to impurities. In fact, cer­tain impurities present in amounts as low as 0.1 mg/1 cause a serious loss of current efficiency. Also, the presence of several impurities in the electrolyte may accelerate the detrimental effect of each impurity.

A Study Of The Diffusion Of Electroplated Coatings In The Solid State., Michael R. Writt May 1948

A Study Of The Diffusion Of Electroplated Coatings In The Solid State., Michael R. Writt

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The term diffusion means an equalization or homogenization of diverse materials. Specifically ap­plied to metals, diffusion is the interchange of atoms. It is, in effect, an invasion of one crystal lattice by the atoms of one or more other crystal lattices. Therefore, the study of diffusion must involve the geometry and physics of crystal lattices as well as their energies.


The Solubility Of Zinc Ethyl Xanthate In Water, Thomas M. Mckenzie Oct 1944

The Solubility Of Zinc Ethyl Xanthate In Water, Thomas M. Mckenzie

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A determination of the solubility of zinc ethyl xanthate was attempted by measuring the refractive index of a saturated solution of that salt. The small increment in refractive index effected by adding zinc ethyl xanthate to water in saturation quantities rendered measurements difficult and of dubious accuracy.


Zinc Plating Magnesium, Howard Wilbur Adam Apr 1943

Zinc Plating Magnesium, Howard Wilbur Adam

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Magnesium and magnesium alloys are becoming more and more important in modern industry. Their use in the aviation industry has been greatly curtailed because of their comparatively poor resistance to corrosion especially in moist atmospheres. Many methods have been adopted to improve their resistance to corrosion.


The Recovery Of Zinc From Butte Mine Waters, Edmond M. Fern May 1942

The Recovery Of Zinc From Butte Mine Waters, Edmond M. Fern

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Very little work has been done towards the recovery of zinc from mine water because the zinc content of the water is generally low. As different from copper, which can very easily be replaced by iron in any of its solutions, zinc is very high up in the electro-chemical series and so the few metals above zinc, most of which are rare and hence expensive, cannot be used to replace zinc from its solution.


The Age-Hardening Of Aluminum With Mgzn2, Sidney E. Worthen May 1940

The Age-Hardening Of Aluminum With Mgzn2, Sidney E. Worthen

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the age-hardening of aluminum with magnesium and zinc in such proportions as to conform to the compound MgZn2.

Because of a lack of time and proper equipment, the only property investigated was the hardness as indicated by the Rockwell Superficial Hardness Tester.

Electrolytic Recovery Of Copper And Zinc From Brass, D. H. Swank May 1937

Electrolytic Recovery Of Copper And Zinc From Brass, D. H. Swank

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this research was to continue the work of Thomas Parker, who worked on the recovery of copper and zinc from brass during the school year l934 - 1935. Since there is such a wide variety of brasses made with usually a third alloying constituent, remelt­ed scrap is suitable only for castings of wide tolerance in specifications.


The Effect Of Impurities On The Electrodeposition Of Zinc From Zinc Sulfate Solution Containing Antimony., Emmitt L. Klebba May 1934

The Effect Of Impurities On The Electrodeposition Of Zinc From Zinc Sulfate Solution Containing Antimony., Emmitt L. Klebba

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

It has been proven by research and years of experience, that before electrolytic zinc is possible, the electrolyte, as zinc sulfate solution must be prepared as pure as is economical. In other words, the ideal electrolyte must only be a solution of one metal - zinc. Every other metal and carbon must be excluded if good recovery and a firm deposit is to be obtained.


The Effect Of Hydrogen Overvoltage On The Electrolytic Deposition Of Zinc, John M. Munzenrider, Kenneth O. Sweeney May 1932

The Effect Of Hydrogen Overvoltage On The Electrolytic Deposition Of Zinc, John M. Munzenrider, Kenneth O. Sweeney

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the deposition of metallic zinc by electro­lysis from neutral or acid solution, little difficulty is experienced provided certain impurities are absent from the electrolyte. The use of the process has long been considered as a potential source, patents on the process having been issued as early as 1880. However, the early experimenters failed to realize the importance of impurities in the electrolyte, and for this reason, the process suffered several severe setbacks when commercial plants were built.


A Preliminary Study Of The Separation Of The Copper Sulfides From Sphalerite And The Effect Of Certain Reagents On Some Of The Pure Copper Minerals In Synthetic Mixtures, Gailen T. Vandel Jan 1931

A Preliminary Study Of The Separation Of The Copper Sulfides From Sphalerite And The Effect Of Certain Reagents On Some Of The Pure Copper Minerals In Synthetic Mixtures, Gailen T. Vandel

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The problem of separating the copper sulfide minerals from sphalerite, in copper - zinc ores, has been a difficult one. This is largely due to the lack of adequate research and the small amount of data obtainable on the behavior of copper and zinc sulfide minerals in flotation circuits.
