The effect of calcium on the properties of molybdenum nitride film electrode was studied by using XRD, SEM and cyclic voltammetry. The results show that the specific electric capacity and the voltage operating range of electrode vary with the concentration of additive in the dipping solution. At the optimum concentration of additive in the dipping solution, the specific electric capacity of the electrode is 2.1 times as large as that of the electrode prepared in the dipping solution without additive, and the voltage operating range of electrode is increased by 0.11 V. The active mechanism of calcium on the properties of film electrode suggested the synergism of the crystal grain regularized and the adsorbability of the film electrode improved and the new phase Ca xN y formed in the film electrode of molybdenum nitride.
