Chromium metal powder from its oxide powder

What is it about?

This is an abstract of the full paper presented at the TMS meeting on electrochemical reduction of chromium oxide powder to chromium metal powder in molten salts. The process is fast and low cost, and clean to environment. Also the mechanism of the electrode (cathode) reaction is explained.

Why is it important?

A new method is being developed for production of chromium powder which is very useful in the industry.
