Students will be able to
- predict the products of electrolysis of aqueous electrolytes, using inert electrodes,
- write half-equations for reactions occurring at the anode and cathode of voltaic cells.
Students should already be familiar with
- the reactivity series of metals,
- electrolysis of a melt,
- ionic half-equations.
Students will not cover
- links to standard values from the electrochemical series and the products discharged.
