salts were found to be stronger passivators than the ammonium salts (about 100 mV greater PI).
The anodic passivators discussed here refer to inhibitors that enhance chemisorption of dissolved oxygen and migrate readily to the anodic sites.
This behaviour cannot be lead back to material properties of the LEDs, but with a great probability the construction, housing and definitely the phosphor-based passivators or colour lenses are behind this phenomenon.
The typical modified zinc phosphate inhibitive pigments are effective as anodic and cathodic passivators in coatings.
