Surface layers of tantalum metal were electrodeposited on steel from K2TaF7-LiF-NaF-KF melts. With careful control of the oxide contents dense and adherent deposits could be obtained by pulse plating. In NaCl-KCl-NaF-Na2CO3 and NaCl-KCl-Na2CO3 melts carbonate ions seems to be reduced to carbon in a single 4 electron step. By electrolyses at a constant potential of – 1.4 V vs. Pt in a NaCl-KCl-NaF-Na2CO3 melt at 800 oC coherent carbon containing surface layers could be obtained on tantalum substrates, when a CO2 atmosphere was applied
