Electrogravimetry is a method used to separate and quantify ions of a substance, usually a metal. In this process, the analyte solution is electrolyzed. Electrochemical reduction causes the analyte to be deposited on the cathode. The mass of the cathode is determined before and after the experiment, and the difference is used to calculate the mass of analyte in the original solution. Controlling the potential of the electrode is important to ensure that only the metal being analyzed will be deposited on the electrode. The process is similar to electroplating.

Electrogravimetry is a method used to separate and quantify ions of a substance, usually a metal. In this process, the analyte solution is electrolyzed. Electrochemical reduction causes the analyte to be deposited on the cathode. The mass of the cathode is determined before and after the experiment, and the difference is used to calculate the mass of analyte in the original solution.
Controlling the potential of the electrode is important to ensure that only the metal being analyzed will be deposited on the electrode. The process is similar to electroplating. Thus electrolysis of an electrolyte is possible only when this back EMF is overcome. If two separated platinum electrodes are placed in a dilute solution of copper sulfate and if a source of potential is applied, no appreciable current will flow through the system, until some minimum potential is applied after which the current will increase as the applied potential increases.
The applied voltage which is just sufficient to overcome the back EMF due to polarization and also to bring about the electrolysis of an electrolyte without any hindrance is known as decomposition potential.

7.2: Electrodeposition (Electrogravimetry)
This method employs an electric current to deposit a solid on an electrode from a solution. Normally the deposit is a metallic plate that has formed from the corresponding metallic ions in the solution; however, other electrode coatings also can be formed. The use…. Electrogravimetry was briefly described above as an interference removal technique. This method employs two or three electrodes, just as in voltammetry. Either a constant current or a constant potential is applied to the preweighed working electrode.
Free pharmacy material. Luckow first discovered the electrogravimetry for the determination of the copper. Then Alexander Classen first published the paper on the electrogravimetry in After that, Gibb's was the first founder of the electrogravimetry for the deposition of the metals on the mercury cathode. Electrogravimetry is a method for the separation of the metal ions by using the electrodes. The deposition takes place on the one electrode. The weight of this electrode is determined before and after deposition.
In gravimetric analysis determination of metal concentration is depends on the weighing process of the metal. But in electrogravimetery the metal concentration is determined by using electrochemistry. It is an easy and accurate method. The Electrogravimetric analysis is done by depositing the metal whose concentration to determine on a pre-weighed electrode, and the concentration can be calculated from the weight gained by that electrode. Cite this Simulator:. For example determination of copper is the most important application of electrogravimetery. The whole process is carried out in an electrolytic cell, which consists of two electrodes an anode and a cathode with an external electrical energy supply.
