Quick Q - what readily-available metals won't corrode in electrolysis?

  1. Aug 6, 2008 #1
    I am using water electrolysis, and I need some bolts to be the anode/cathodes and I don't want them to corrode. Before anyone asks I will not be adding salt so there will be no chlorine. Thanks!

    Try stainless and if that doesn't work just use some platinum bolts you might have lying around.
