The electrochemical behavior of dimeric tungsten complexes in metaphosphate-containing melts is studied potentiometrically and voltammetrically. The electrodeposition of tungsten and tungsten coatings from halide-oxide and oxide melts and the correlation between the properties of deposits and the conditions of  electrolysis are investigated.
