Hi, when you have a galvanic/electrolysis cell that contains an elektrode that is inert such as a C or Pt elektrode. Can metal ions undergo reduction, thus form a layer on top of them?
Or can metal ions only crystallise on top of an elektrode made out of the same material?
For example, when you have an electrolysis cell made up out of an Mn and C electrode submerged in Mn(NO3)2(aq), will these metal ions form a layer on top of the Mn-electrode or the C-electrode?
I hope it's clear? (English is not my native language)
