The principles for optimal managing a composition of base solutions for the molten-salt reactor are formulated here for ensuring the given properties and exchange processes as a selective extracting of salt components. The correction of melt properties can be carried out by means of impurity additives parallel with the forced and controllable variation of reduction-oxidation (redox) potential of the non-stoichiometric salts. The accent is done on a possible application of the potentiometer for monitoring and managing of the properties of MSR fuel compositions. For this, one can use the precision methods of e.m.f and the coulomb-metric titration of sodium (lithium) in a galvanic cell upon the base of Na+(Li+)-β″-Al2O3 solid electrolyte with cation conductivity.
