FFC Cambridge process  based on electrochemical reduction of solid compounds was considered as an alternative way to produce molybdenum at relatively low temperatures. Similar to reduction of WO3 , loss of molybdenum as molybdenum oxychloride from MoO3 in CaCl2 containing molten salts is inevitable . MoS2 powder pressed and sintered at 400oC to form pellets were used as starting material for electrochemical formation of pure Mo in molten CaCl2-NaCl salt mixture under argon gas at 800oC. A constant voltage in the range 1 to 3.0V was applied between MoS2 cathode and graphite anode. When the process was terminated at a prescribed time, the cathode was removed from the molten salt, cooled in argon, washed with water in air to dissolve the solidified salt, and then dried at about 100oC in vacuum before further analysis employing XRD, SEM and EDS.
