Abstract: Equilibrium content of sodium and lithium in aluminium in contact with the melts of the system Na3AlF6-AlF3-LiF-Al2O3 (saturated) was investigated at the temperature of 1000°C and/or 15 °C superheat. The excess content of AlF3 with respect to cryolite was 10 mass % and 20 mass %, respectively. The content of LiF ranged from 0 to 2.5 mass %.A thermodynamic model describing the experimental data on the content of sodium in aluminium is proposed. The model is consistent with the literature data on the vapour pressure over the molten system Na3AlF6-AlF3 and with the phase diagram of this system.
