Abstract

Fast, ambient-temperature, steady electrolysis of H2S from solutions of NaSH in aqueous NaOH was achieved using suitably activated glassy carbon anodes. Thus electrolyses of H2S can probably be carried out at high rates with modest cell voltages in the range 1-1.5 V. The variation in anode current densities with [NaSH], [NaOH], and anode rotational speed is presented.
