Influence of Bi3+ Ions on Kinetics of Lead Dioxide Electrodeposition from Methanesulfonate Electrolytes

Influence of bismuth ions on kinetics of lead dioxide electrodeposition from methanesulfonate electrolytes on Pt-electrode was studied. Experimental results are interpreted to be consistent with the mechanism proposed previously for lead dioxide electrodeposition in literature. The presence of bismuth ions in the electrodeposition solution causes decreasing rate constants of lead dioxide formation due to additive adsorption.
