I read that when you use iron and copper (paperclips) for electrodes
during electrolysis of water, you get hydrogen gas and iron hydroxide.
I also know that when you use carbon electrodes, you get hydrogen gas and
chlorine gas. Does platinum electrodes react to form other products like
this (other that H2 and O2)?
