In a pipeline, the decomposition or destruction of the pipe wall by stray electrical currents. The chemical decomposition of a substance when electricity is passed through it in solution or in the molten state. When the process is applied to water or hydrogen, a potential energy source is formed.
The process in which an electric current flowing through a water solution of a chemical breaks that compound up into its component parts. Chlorine is produced by electrolysis of brine (salt dissolved in water).
In general, the chemical change caused by the passage of an electric current, often a decomposition of a material; the decomposition of water into oxygen and hydrogen by the application of a direct current; the action in which one metal goes into solution in a galvanic cell at the junction between dissimilar metals in a water system. (See galvanic corrosion.)
The process of permanent hair removal using needle type treatment. Refers to the three types of permanent hair removal: 1) galvanic electrolysis, 2) thermolysis, 3) the blend. Electrolysis, depending on usage, may refer to treatment in general, as previously cited, or may specifically designate galvanic (true) electrolysis. Electrolysis also refers to the chemical change, especially decomposition, produced in an electrolyte by an electric current.
in hair removal, the practice of epilation with electrified needles. Electrolysis was originally the name for hair removal with direct current only (also called galvanic), although the term is generally applied to all three modalities of epilation with an electrified needle.
the decomposition of a chemical compound brought about by the passage of an electrical current through the compound or through the solution containing the compound. Corroding action of stray current is caused by electrolysis
the passage of an electric current through an electrolyte, causing the migration of the positively charged ions to the negitive electrode (cathode) and the negatively charged ions to the positive electrode (anode).
Chemical reactions brought about by passing electricity through a solution. The following equation illustrates the process of the electrolysis of water (H2O). electrolyte. A substance that produces ions (particles with an electric charge) when dissolved in water. The resulting solution (which can also be referred to as an electrolyte) conducts electricity.
The process of decomposing a substance, usually in solution or as a melt by the passage of an electric current. Electrolysis may also be thought of as the process of forcing a current through a cell to produce a chemical change for which the cell potential is negative. Example applications of electrolysis are: charging a battery, electroplating and electrorefining. See also: Electrolytic cell Hall-Heroult Process
The process used for refining precious and other metals in which an electric current passes through an electrolyte (chemical solution) from anode to cathode. Impure metal dissolves at the anode and pure metal is deposted to the cathode.
When two connected, but differing metals are exposed to an electrolyte, such as seawater, they in effect become a battery. The weaker metal looses electrons to the seawater, which creates an electrical charge. This process rapidly erodes the metal supplying the electrons. Protection is achieved with the use of sacrificial zinc anodes.
(electro)- A method of permanent hair removal. Male to Female transsexuals need all the facial hair removed. The HRT does not stop the hair growth, although it may slow it down. This may use galvanic, thermal, or a combination of the two (known as blend). Currently, my electrolysis is performed by Randi of Electrology St. Louis
A process that uses electricity, passing through an electrolytic solution or other appropriate medium, to cause a reaction that breaks chemical bonds, e.g., electrolysis of water to produce hydrogen and oxygen.
the process of passing and electric current through a hair follicle in an attempt to temporarily deaden the hair follicle and impede hair growth. Although still being offered today, laser hair removal is quickly becoming the hair removal procedure of choice by many.
A hair removal technique, which utilizes a hair-thin metal probe, which is slid into a hair follicle. Electricity is delivered to the follicle through the probe, which causes localized damage to the areas that generate hairs. If done properly, insertion does not puncture the skin and hair removal is permanent.
A process by which direct current passes from one electrode (the anode) through a liquid electrolyte to another electrode (the cathode) in a cell. The passage of ions from the anode causes the pure metal only to be electrodeposited on the cathode. Because of the purity of the deposited metal, electrolysis is often used in refining. Impurities fall to the bottom of the cell as a slime and may contain valuable by-products.
An electrochemical reaction causing a black stain normally found around metal fixtures or on the plaster. It is caused by two dissimilar metals being plumbed together or from an improper electrical grounding of pool equipment or lights. Electrolysis also means the decomposition of water and other inorganic compounds in aqueous solution by means of electricity. Chlorine generators use this principle to produce chlorine from salt in the water.
A chemical change in a substance that results from the passage of an electric current through an electrolyte. The production of commercial hydrogen by separating the elements of water, hydrogen, and oxygen, by charging the water with an electrical current.
The process where an electric current is passed through an electrolytic solution or other appropriate medium, causing a chemical reaction. The process of driving a redox reaction in the reverse direction by passage of an electric current through the reaction mixture.
A metallurgical phenomena that occurs when two dissimilar metals are connected together. This phenomena causes an electron flow to move between the two dissimilar metals causing the weaker metal to fail.
Definition: Process where electrical energy will change in chemical energy. The process happens in an electrolyte, a watery solution or a salt melting which gives the ions a possibility to transfer between two electrodes. The electrolyte is the connection between the two electrodes, which are also connected to a direct current. If you apply an electrical current, the positive ions migrate to the cathode while the negative ions will migrate to the anode. At the electrodes, the cations will be reduced and the anions will be oxidated.
