The effect of current density and sodium chloride concentration in solution on the phase composition and pore structure of the products of ac electrolysis of metallic Sn has been studied using X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetry, differential scanning calorimetry, electron microscopy, and low-temperature nitrogen adsorption measurements. The results demonstrate that the synthesis products consist of tin(II) and tin(IV) oxides and hydroxides, whose percentages depend on electrolysis conditions, and have a large specific surface area and mesoporous structure. The average particle size ranges from 10 to 30 nm.
