Layer growth mechanisms on metallic electrodes under anodic polarization in cryolite-alumina melt

Abstract : The anodic behavior of Fe, Ni, Co electrodes was investigated in a cryolite-alumina melt at 960 °C, by electrochemical techniques, microstructural characterizations and thermodynamic calculations, to provide a fundamental understanding of layers formation at metal (M) electrode surface. At low overpotential, anodic dissolution of M occurs; when the Mn+ concentration at the surface reaches saturation, a MxAl3-xO4 spinel phase precipitates. Then, a dense MyO layer grows at the metal/spinel interface. As for Fe, polarization at higher overpotentials lead to the same layers of spinel and monoxide, but pores at the metal/FeyO interface cause loss of adhesion of the oxide film.
