Electrolysis of Molten NaCl

If sodium chloride is melted (above 801 °C), two electrodes are inserted into the melt, and an electric current is passed through the molten salt, then chemical reactions take place at the electrodes. ... Chlorine gas bubbles out of the melt above the anode.

During the electrolysis of a molten salt: (a) Oxidation occurs at the anode (positive electrode). (b) Anions (negatively charged ions) migrate to the positive anode (anode).
(d) Cations (positively charged ions) migrate to the negative cathode (cathode).

during the electrolysis of molten sodium chloride, chlorine gas is evolved from the anode while hydrogen gas is produced at the cathode making the solution more basic
