Reaction of Cr and Cr2O3 with NaCl were investigated in air at 673-973 K. In the presence of NaCl, mass gain of Cr was remarkably accelerated. Na2CrO4 and Cl2 were produced during heating Cr2O3 with NaCl. Na2CrO4, Cl2, CrCl2, CrCl3, and Cr2O3 were produced when Cr was heated with NaCl. Na2CrO4 and Cl2 were produced by the reaction of Cr with NaCl and O2. CrCl2 and CrCl3 were produced by the reaction of Cr with Cl2. Na2CrO4, CrCl2 and CrCl3 accelerated the oxidation of Cr.
