Electrolysis of Molten Sodium Chloride
Home | New Page Title


Electrolysis of Molten Sodium Chloride occurs when molten sodium chloride can be electrolyzed to produce metallic sodium and gaseous chlorine. Industrially, this process occurs in a unique dell named Downs cell. The cell is connected to a battery, allowing electrons to flow from the battery to electrolytic cell.


            This process can produce large amounts of metallic sodium and gaseous chlorine, and is commonly used on mineral dressing and metallurgy industries.
