Anodising Aluminum, a Molecular Level


Anodising aluminum at a molecular level I'm an A level chem student trying to do a practical on ANODISING ALUMINUM, but although there is lots on how, I need to find out why. And whats going on at a molecular level. e.g. formulas of dyes and equations etc

Thanks for your time,

I too am a chemistry student. My research involves the dye particles themselves. I too am having a hard time finding out information about the dyes. There are no MSDS information on the structure. This seems to be and industry secret. Sorry I am not much help, but at least you know it is not anything you are doing wrong. The information is simply not out there. I am sure the industry knows the relationship between dye particles and anodising, so whatever we find will simple be what they already know to be true.

Good luck in your research.
