Silver-Silver Sulfide Reference Electrode
This invention is a new reference electrode that was prepared by anodizing (electrochemically oxidizing) silver metal in a sodium sulfide solution (SSSE). This results in a silver metal wire coated with silver sulfide. The electrode is extremely stable. The measured potentials for SSSE versus SSCE during two experiments in 1 molar KCl in air were 0.883...

A System, Apparatus, And Process For Leaching Metal And Storing Thermal Energy During Metal Extraction
Researchers at the University of Arizona have developed a new single vessel or “one pot” copper electrorefinery process that utilizes a molten chloride salt (NaCl – KCl – ZnCl2) as both the extracting fluid and electrolyte. Background: Several European and South American cities have regulated or banned traditional precious...

Metal Hydrogen pH Electrode
This technology is a simple metal electrode that reacts to the presence of hydrogen ion, for use in measuring the pH of a fluid. Background: pH sensors are sensors that measure, the acidity or alkalinity of a fluid. They can measure pH in a variety of ways, one of which is through use of an electrode. The electrode is placed within the fluid, and the...

Optimized Ore Processing using Molten Salts for Leaching and Thermal Energy Storage
University of Arizona researchers have developed and optimized an electrochemical metal extraction process utilizing molten chloride salt. The salt serves as a heat transfer fluid, which can power the process itself or provide power to outside processing units or communities. The material, or slag, leftover from the process is non-toxic and may easily...

Device for Gas Protected Salt Melting, Molten Salt Dehumidification and Deaeration
This technology is a chamber placed within a furnace that reaches temperatures high enough to produce molten salts. With the help of a vacuum pump and nitrogen purge/sparge techniques, these dehumidified and deaerated salts can be pumped through an outlet in the chamber to another destination for direct use. Background: Industries involving "smart"...
