Magnesium is a reactive metal and solution electrolysis, will not yield any metal. the presence of water will oxidize the Mg to Magnesium oxide. hence a fused Magnesium Chloride, or fused carnalite (MgCl2.KCl.6H2O), is used, producing Magnesium meta, which floats on the electrolyte and Chlorine gas.
the Carnalite process is used in Russia by Vami and Solikamsk and Dead “Sea Magnesium” in Israel.
