Title: Ozone electrosynthesis in an electrolyzer with solid polymer electrolyte

Environmental problems have provided a focus of growing attention within the past few years. Of particular interest are preparation techniques for ozone, which is known to be an environmentally clean oxidant applicable to conditioning of potable water, sewage treatment, and disinfection of various domestic media. It also can be employed in chemical synthesis and a number of other applications. An electrolyzer with PbO{sub 2}-covered anode pressed against a membrane of a solid polymer electrolyte of sulfocationite type is shown to exhibit high operational qualities in electrochemical production of ozone.
