I often see that platinum is used as an electrode.
Is this essential? If it is essential, is it because pt is inert, or that
it has catalytic properties? Or both?
If it is not essential, could one use stainless steel? Anything else?
I used to use carbon rods I removed from dry cells.
Yeah, that works but poorly since carbon is a poor conductor.
How about lead shot?
