Product Details

This is the simplest type of electrolysis apparatus. Platinum electrodes are attached to insulated connecting rods which are attached to binding posts mounted on a non-conducting support. The support rests across the top of a battery jar (not included) and has 2 clips that hold 2 inverted test tubes. The unit operates on a 6V battery or 10V DC power supply.
 
One of chemistry's classic experiments is the electrolysis of water to generate hydrogen and oxygen. Adding some dilute sulfuric acid or a little NaOH to the water will increase its conductivity and make the reaction proceed at a higher rate. There are other electrolysis experiments that can be performed with the Brownlee apparatus.
