Molybdenum and molybdenum carbide coating on different substrates exhibit unique physical and chemical properties which have rendered them important in many high temperature structural material applications. The superior wear and corrosion resistance of molybdenum and its carbide in sulphur containing melts make them suitable materials for coating the current collectors and containers of high energy density batteries like Na-S, Li-FeS2. The poor fabricability and expensive nature of nolybdenum has resulted in the development of its coating by different methods like plasma or flame spray, sputtering cvd, fused salt electrolysis etc., Recently fused salt plating has received greater attention as this method has been found to provide pore-free, oxide free coating for molybdenum and its carbide. Several electrolyte compositions have been reported and are mainly classified as chloride melt, fluoride melt, fluoride-oxide melt, tungstate melt etc. The various parameters involved in employing these metals along with the nature of the deposit on various substrates have been reviewed in this communication
