Calculation of diffusion and migration currents in systems with arbitrary ionic charge where metal electrodeposition occurs in parallel with anion reduction

A. V. Sokirko and Yu. I. Kharkats

An analytical solution of the electrodiffusion problem was obtained for systems with arbitrary ionic charge where cation reduction occurs in parallel with a process of anion reduction involving hydrogen ions and producing another kind of anions. The conditions were analyzed where limiting currents can be attained for the first and second process and the regions of admissible currents were defined where the two processes can occur in parallel in a steady mode.
