Cathodic Modification in Aqueous Phosphate­-Molibdate Solutions of Chitosan as a Way of Enhancing Hydride-Forming and Hydride-Accumulating Properties of Titanium

The electrochemical behavior of Ti electrode in aqueous solutions containing Na2MoO4 + H3PO4 + chitosan was investigated by methods of potential – time (E–t) curves at cathodic polarisation in galvanostatic mode, currentless chronopotentiometry, optic microscopy, X­ray spectral analysis of surface and determining roughness by measuring the wetting angle.

Elemental composition of the surface layers formed on titanium at the cathodic treatment in chitosan-containing aqueous-dimethyl sulfoxide solutions of phosphate-molybdate electrolyte

It was established that at the cathodic treatment of titanium in aqueous dimethyl sulfoxide solutions of sodium molybdate, containing phosphoric acid, at the potential of the cathodic incorporation of sodium (Ec  = ? 2.6 V) in the potentiostatic mode, the composition formed on the electrode surface layer depended not only on the composition of the solution, but also on the volume ratio of the aqueous electrolyte solution and the organic solvent (dimethyl sulfoxide).
