Porous disk

Postby Ashley Wang 4G » Sun Feb 23, 2020 10:20 pm

If a porous disk is used in place of a salt bridge, would there actually be no separation between the two half reactions?

I believe it does not matter. As long as there is ion flow, the reaction will be okay. The reaction just needs to transport electrons.

I think there should still be separation of the half reactions as long there is a method for the transport of ions or electrons

I believe porous disks and salt bridges are notated in the same way as they achieve the same end goal.
