An apparatus was designed and constructed to continuously record mass transfer to or from a metal electrode immersed in a molten-salt electrolyte while a constant current is passed through it, thereby providing a direct measure of the electron-to-atom transfer ratio. Special features include provisions for use of vacuum or inert gas atmospheres and for successive removals and replacements of electrode specimens without disturbing the molten-salt electrolyte. The technique proved successful on electrolyses in the nacl-ticl2- tic3 molten-salt system.
