Safety of a Small Scale Electrolysis Experiment

  1. Jan 15, 2016 #1
    I'm going to perform a small scale electrolysis experimenter of water. I want to find out how the rates of the gases are produced when the amount of electrolyte added to the water is changed. I'm going to use baking soda (NaHCO3) as the electrolyte but I just wanted to make sure that I wont be producing carbon monoxide. Is this true?

    Yes, you will not be producing carbon monoxide.
