What chemicals not dissove / no corrosion on Copper or Gold anode?





Hi there,

I have a question about choosing a chemical aqueous solution. My Copper or Gold parts need be put in a chemical solution as anode for electrolytic conductivity. There will be current through my parts. I hope my parts do not dissolve into the solution and no corrosion happens on my parts. Does anyone have idea what kind of chemicals I can choose?

Thanks a lot.

I admit to not understanding the question, but platinized titanium is probably a better dimensionally stable anode (DSA)material than copper or gold. Good luck.
