In the electrolysis of water, the water combines with electrons at the cathode and is reduced to hydrogen gas.
In the electrolysis of solutions containing ions (charged atoms) of such metals as copper and silver, the reduction of the metal at the cathode causes the metal to be deposited, or to plate out, on the cathode.
Electrolysis is also used to anodize metals to make their surfaces more decorative and resistant to corrosion.

Electrolysis is one of the acknowledged means of generating chemical products from their native state.
Chlorine is produced by the electrolysis of sodium chloride (common table salt) solution, often called "brine." Thus, when sodium chloride is dissolved in water, it dissociates into sodium cations and chloride anions.
The chloride ions are oxidized at the anode to form chlorine gas and water molecules are reduced at the cathode to form hydroxyl anions and hydrogen gas.
