Revision PowerPoint - Big ideas

Electrochemistrymaking elements using electricity

electrolysis and ionic compounds
Electrolysis and ionic compounds
  • In electrolysis an electric current is passed through an ionic compound, either molten or in solution.
  • The compound breaks down into elements.

LEO the LION says GERrrr
  • Oxidation happens at the positive electrode. Negative ions lose electrons.
  • Reduction happens at the negative electrode. Positive ions gain electrons.


LEO the lion says GER

Losing Electrons is Oxidation,

Gaining Electrons is Reduction.

electrolysis in action
Electrolysis in action
  • The experiment uses a direct current
  • The electrodes allow electrons to enter or leave the solution
  • The electrolyte is the ionic compound

Metal objects are electroplated by making them the negative electrode and placing them in a solution of soluble ions. e.g. nickel plating copper

extracting aluminium
Extracting aluminium
  • Aluminium is extracted by electrolysis of molten bauxite dissolved in cryolite.
brine and the chlor alkali industry
Brine and the chlor-alkali industry
  • The electrolysis of brine (salt water) produces sodium hydroxide, chlorine and hydrogen.
  • Sodium hydroxide is used to manufacture
  • soaps and detergents
  • rayon and acetate fibres
  • paper
  • ceramics
  • Chlorine is used to manufacture
  • antiseptics and disinfectants
  • pesticides and weed-killers
  • bleach
  • and to kill bacteria in drinking water
  • Hydrogen is used to manufacture
  • margarine
  • ammonia
  • It is used in fuel cells and in rocket fuels for space craft
electrolysis of brine
Electrolysis of brine
  • Chloride ions are discharged as chlorine gas at the +ve electrode. Hydrogen ions are discharged at the –ve electrode as hydrogen gas. Sodium and hydroxide ions are left as sodium hydroxide solution.
