Kinetics of the growth of the oxide layer during anodic oxidation of aluminum

Experimental plots of anode current density against time obtained for various electrolytes over a temperature range from 5 to 60°C have been compared with a theoretical model which describes the kinetics of the growth of the oxide film during anodic oxidation of aluminum. It is concluded from differences in the kinetic parameters for ammonium benzoate and ammonium adipate that the oxidative destruction of the corresponding carboxylate anion is involved in a rate determining step of the process.
