A study of the production of sodium perchlorate electrolytically


Maurer, Frederick Andrew (1922) A study of the production of sodium perchlorate electrolytically. Bachelor's thesis, California Institute of Technology.


The purpose of this work is to investigate the electrolytic production of perchlorate from chloride, and particularly to determine which anode materials serve best under the rigorous conditions imposed. In order that one may better understand what follows, it is necessary to briefly summarize the existing theory of the electrolytic formation of chlorate and perchlorate.
