Zirconium diboride has been cathodically electrodeposited from ZrO2 and B2O3 dissolved in an equimolar mixture of K2ZrF6+KBF4 at 600°. The deposition process is controlled by the concentration of B2O3 in the molten salt solution, and at higher current densities zirconium is co- deposited. Carbon dioxide is evolved simultaneously from a graphite anode.
