Work by Brønsted and Kane on decomposition of sodium amalgam (1929-1930), interpretation of their results by Frumkin and much later findings by Frumkin and coworkers have been of importance in formulation of a model for corrosion of metals and other reactions taking place at mixed potentials. The latest examinations of amalgam decomposition reveal the occurrence of non-electrochemical dissolution of metal.
