TiCxO1-x solid solutions were synthesized by sintering a mixture of titanium carbide and titanium monoxide at 1600°C. The corresponding structures and morphologies of the TiCxO1-x solid solutions were characterized by XRD and SEM. A series of tests has been performed on the electrochemical dissolution behavior of TiCxO 1-x solid solutions in NaCl-KCl molten salt. The influences of synthesis time and electrokinetic parameters on the anodic dissolution behavior were also investigated. The results showed that TiCxO1-x solid solutions can dissolve as Tin+ into alkali chloride melt. Titanium ion species dissolved from TiCxO1-x solid solutions changes between Ti2+ and Ti3+ depending on the applied potential. The tail gas on the anode was monitored by a mass spectrometer. It was found the synthesis time significantly affects the components of the anodic gas.
