Abstract

Electropolishing is an electrochemical process that involves anodic dissolution of a metal specimen (anode electrode) in an electrolytic cell. This article reviews the two-electrode and three-electrode systems for electropolishing. It presents the equations of anodic reactions and the selection criteria of electrolyte for electropolishing. The article also describes the mechanism of electropolishing and the effect of electropolishing on properties of metals.
