The oceans of earth are an aqueous, electrolytic solution, covering about 72% of the earth's surface. The dissolved materials in sea water may be broadly classified into (i)m ajor constituents (ii)t race elements (iii)n utrients and (iv) organic materials. The five major constituents viz. CI-, Na+, SO 4, Ca+ + and Mg+ + account for more than 98% by weight of its dissolved salts in sea water. This paper describes the utilition of some of the above constituents to produce chemicals and metals by electrolysii. Details on the production of alkali-chlorine, halates, perhalates, magnesium metal, sodium metal and lithium for which the chemicals from sea water are utili as raw materials, are described.
