An electrolytic method for preparing chemically resistant Pm-Ni alloys was developed. Optimal electrolysis conditions ensuring maximal Pm recovery from the electrolyte (up to 95%) with the alloy formation were determined. Side steps of the process were examined. The main of them is reduction of Pm in the bulk of the electrolyte with alkali metal subions.
