The experimental results are for electro-deoxidation in molten salt and the numerical results are for molten salt processes in electrometallurgy.
The internal cathode microstructure is analysed using SEM, Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and computerised X-ray tomography.
Numerical simulations using COMSOL multiphysics report results for molten salt processes using theory from rotating disk electrodes and multiphase flow. Scale-up of electro-deoxidation is discussed using primary current distribution simulations in various electro-deoxidation cell designs.
Experimental details of electro-deoxidation cell construction is referenced to and outlined in my earlier work: Electrochim. Acta 164, 48 (2015)
