Last month we had looked at setting up small scale chemistry experiments (SSC) to study the reactions of acids and bases. That was just a sampling of what is possible and I hope it leads to modification and extension work. This time, let’s look at a topic studied in secondary and senior secondary levels – electrochemistry. This is a fairly complex topic and one in which it is hard to find real-life demonstrations. This article looks at electrolysis.
