Title: DOUBLE-BAKED, SELF-CHANNELLING ELECTRODE

Abstract

A method is given for making an electrode for use in the electrolytic reduction of uranium oxides to uranium metal in a fused salt electrolyte. Uranlum oxide such as UO/sub 2/ is mixed with somewhat less than the stoichiometric amount of carbon needed for the reduction, and the mixture is baked and crushed to make a nonspherical material. The latter is then mixed with a carbon binder sufficient to satisfy stoichiometry, pressed into a shape such as a cylinder, and baked. (AEC)
