  • Electrolysis
    • The splitting of an ionic compound by passing electricity through it
    • In order for it to happen, ions need to be able to move (aqueus)
    • Positive electrode = ANODE
    • Negative electrode = CATHODE
    • Negative ions attracted to the positive electrode
    • Positive ions attracted to the negative electrode
    • During electrolysis redox reaction occurs
      • OXIDATION
      • REDUCTION
      • OILRIG =Oxidation is loss of electrons, Reduction is gain of electrons
