Hello, i want to try and make some lead dioxide electrodes, but i have no clue as to how. i need to make lead dioxide, then apparently mix it with a binding agent to make an electrode, and thats all the info i could find could someone please fill me in on the rest? like what that binding agent is and so on, what is the proccess involved in turning lead into lead dioxide? i have some old car batteries due to go to the dump as they are working at less that 50% efficiency which was apparently enough reason for my dad to say theyre ready for the dump! is it true that the lead sheets inside the batteries are just pure lead dioxide? the reason i need it is to make sodium chlorate, and in extension, potassium chlorate, and i dont want to use graphite electrodes as they will errode away, plus i cant afford any platinum electrodes, nor can i find them for that matter!
