The current efficiency in the electrolytic cells for magnesium depends much upon the wettability of cathode surface by molten metal and the electrolyte. The possibilities of improving cathode conditioning in MgCh -. NaCl - KC1 - BaClz systems by marginal adjustments of bath compositions, cathode material and use of addition agents were studied in a laboratory scale and the results are reported.
