In the present paper we report the NiO solubility in a variety of alkali carbonate compositions in presence of MgO, CaCO3 , BaCO3 and La2 O3 additions under different conditions of gas composition and temperature. Two types of binary eutectic melts were chosen, namely the standard electrolyte (62–38) (Li-K)2 CO3 and (52–48) % (Li-Na)2 CO3 mixtures. The ternary eutectic melt chosen was (43.5-31.5-25.0) mol % (Li-Na-K)2 CO3 . The observed reduction of NiO solubility induced by the additives can be explained in terms of a higher basic character of all the modified electrolytes, although the NiO dissolution still follows an acidic dissolution mechanism in all the conditions under study.
