Polarographic Determination Of Germanium, Calvin Leo Stevenson May 1953

Polarographic Determination Of Germanium, Calvin Leo Stevenson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the past germanium has been determined by either wet methods or by the spectograph; the spectograph being used for the determination of very small amounts of ger­manium and wet methods used when more than one hundredth of one percent germanium is present. Both of these analyti­cal schemes have weaknesses.


A Study Of The Effects Of The Chloride Ion On The Lead-Silver Anodes And On The Lead Tenor Of The Zinc Deposit In Zinc Electrolysis, William A. Mitchell May 1953

A Study Of The Effects Of The Chloride Ion On The Lead-Silver Anodes And On The Lead Tenor Of The Zinc Deposit In Zinc Electrolysis, William A. Mitchell

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The electrolyte used in the commercial production of electrolytic zinc from zinc sulphate solutions contains small amounts of impurities each of which has its own effects upon the process. Impurities such as antimony, cobalt, nickel, and iron tend to lower the current efficiency while other impurities such as chlorine, fluorine, and nitrates tend to increase the corrosion of the lead anodes and thereby increase the lead tenor of the zinc deposit.
