Inert Electrodes

Postby Ashish Verma 2I » Sun Mar 17, 2019 10:47 am

Can we always use Platinum as an inert electrode for our cell diagrams when one is needed or are there others that must be used in certain cases?

Use Platinum as an inert conductor even if an electrolyte is solid because you have to make sure it's a metal because metals are good conductors.
