The possibility of dissolving brass of grade L63 in a melt of alkali metal carbonates at an operating temperature of 773 K in potentiostatic and galvanostatic regimes is shown. It was found that the pore size and quantity depend on the electrochemical parameters, on the applied potential or current density.
