PREPARING FOR REANODIZATION

Re-anodization of the aluminum metal is important so that the pores arrange uniformly and meet the desired configuration. Therefore, the alumina membrane must be removed, restoring the aluminum metal (This would make it possible to re-anodize). We immersed the membrane in 50 mL of chromic acid solution. A regular flask was used to hold the solution and the membrane. The flask was then placed under a condenser, where it would be heated. The reaction with the chromic acid would remove the membrane, preparing us for a second anodization.
