An investigation of the electrohydrolysis of sodium sulfate using a corrugated Nafion® 117 membrane is reported. A comparison of the performance of a flat and corrugated Nafion® 117 in a two-compartment membrane electrolysis cell is made. Corrugating the membrane increased the active membrane area by 57% compared to the projected area. The effect of flow rate, current density and salt concentration on current efficiencies, transport properties and achievable product concentrations are presented. The results show a large improvement on transport properties, current efficiencies and product formation using corrugated membranes. Corrugated membranes gave an improvement of up to 77% on achievable base concentration and an increase of approximately 22% in current efficiency.
