"A study of the current-potential relationships, and the electrodeposition of antimony metal was conducted for fused mixtures of Sb2S3-Na2S, Sb2S3-Sb and Sb2S3-NaCl-KCl in the temperature range of 700° - 900°C. An attempt was made to determine the mutual solubility of molten antimony and Sb2S3-Na2S melts. The microstructure of deposited metal was studied metallographically. Analysis of phases present in the matte mixture (Sb2S3-Na2S) was made by x-ray diffraction patterns.
All investigations were carried out in a protective atmosphere of argon gas. Graphite electrodes were used for the electrolysis. A detailed description is given for the process and apparatus used in the experiments. The methods used for the preparation of anhydrous Na2S and the electrolytic master mixture of Sb2S3 and Na2S are also discussed"--Abstract, page ii.
