Abstract

Current commercial use of the mercury cathode cell is limited to two types of electrolytic sodium cells-­the Castner cell and the Sorenson cell. Mercury as a cathode medium has also found application in polarographic analysis, a method of a simultaneous quantitative and qualitative analysis of several metal components of solution.
