Variation of a composition of electrolyte used in synthesis of tungsten carbide in a course of isothermal heating is investigated. The influence of the length of the electrolysis period on the composition of the electrolyte and the cathode deposit is studied. A method of obtaining highly dispersed tungsten monocarbide powder is developed.
