Electrochemical refining is the purification process for producing commercially pure metals from crude metals. This article describes the principles of electrochemical reactions. It discusses the physical properties of the basic components of electrochemical refining cell. The article also explains the engineering considerations required in the refining process. Theoretical and technological principles of electrochemical refining are illustrated, with examples.
