Conductivities of basic AICl3-NaCI melts containing different oxidation states of selenium species have been measured. The dependencies of the conductivity on the mole fraction and oxidation states of selenium species are discussed. The melt containing only SeCl4 shows the linear relation between the conductivity and temperature. A maximum conductivity is obtained as the formal oxidation state of selenium is around 2.
