Metallic molybdenum film was electrodeposited in ZnCl2-NaCl-KCl (0.60:0.20:0.20, in mole fraction) melt containing MoCl5 at 250°C. In this melt, a dense film was obtained by potentiostatic electrolysis at 0.15 V vs Zn(II)/Zn for 3 h. Addition of 4% (mole fraction) of KF to the melt led to larger cathodic current in cyclic voltammogram, and gave a dense, more adhesive and smooth metal film with a thickness of ca. 0.5 μm.
