Electrochemical behavior of silver in tungstate-molybdate melts was studied by potentiometric and voltammetric methods. The electrode process was identified as a single-electron reversible one. The effect of silver on the electrochemical deposition of molybdenum carbide coatings and their electrochemical corrosion behavior in a sodium polysulfide melt was studied.
