Iron which has been deposited electrolytically from an aqueous solution is not necessarily a definite product, but varies in chemical composition and physical constitution, depending upon the adjustment of the various factors which govern the deposition. High purity is a property frequently ascribed to electrolytic iron, and it is probably a fact that by no other means can iron be purified to as high a degree as is possible by the electrolytic method. It is safe to say that absolutely pure iron has never been produced either electrolytically or by any other method.
