Part 2 reports electrode kinetic studies based on anodic stripping from rotating disk electrodes made of platinum, glassy carbon, copper and antimony. With all of these, the deposition of antimony or its oxide could be followed, with the electrode material seen to influence the nature of the deposit. Using this equipment, it appeared that antimony could be recovered only from certain technical electrolytes. To some extent, modifying the hydrodynamic conditions resulted in improved recovery of the metal.
