Science for Production


We investigated the physicomechanical and service properties of electrolytic dispersed powders of tungsten and molybdenum carbides produced by high-temperature electrochemical synthesis. We show the possibility of using them as a hard ceramic alloy and catalyst in reactions of electrorelease and electrodissolution of hydrogen.
