CBSE Class 12-science Answered

Why so we need to replace carbon rods in electrolytic reduction of Al2O3(alumina) periodically?
Asked by sheetu.k.aggarwal | 15 Feb, 2011, 09:29: PM
Expert Answer
Dear Student
 
During the process, the electrochemical reaction causes liquid aluminium metal to be deposited at the cathode as a precipitate, while the oxygen from the alumina combines with carbon from the anode to produce carbon dioxide, CO2.
The oxidation of the carbon anode reduces the required voltage across each cell. This is why we need to replace them with new ones.
 
 
We hope that clarifies your query.
