The chemical process in which the ionic compound in fused, molten or aqueous form allows the passage of direct current through it and undergo simultaneous chemical decomposition leading to the discharge of ions at electrodes is called as electrolysis.
Process is carried out in an electrolytic cell, an apparatus consisting of positive and negative electrode.
Electric current enters through negatively charged electrode, Components of the solution gains electron (reduced) at this electrode and Components of the solution also travel to the anode and releases electrons (oxidation).
(1) Production for metals and non-metals such as Aluminium, Magnesium, Chlorine and Fluorine.
(2) Electrolysis method is employed for coating one metal with another
