anode

(ăn`ōd), electrodeelectrode,
terminal through which electric current passes between metallic and nonmetallic parts of an electric circuit. In most familiar circuits current is carried by metallic conductors, but in some circuits the current passes for some distance through a nonmetallic conductor.

anode

[′a‚nōd]
(electricity)
The terminal at which current enters a primary cell or storage battery; it is positive with respect to the device, and negative with respect to the external circuit.
(electronics)
The collector of electrons in an electron tube. Also known as plate; positive electrode.
In a semiconductor diode, the terminal toward which forward current flows from the external circuit.
(physical chemistry)
The positive terminal of an electrolytic cell.

anode

In an electric system to protect underground iron pipes or structures from electrochemical action, a metallic rod which is driven in the ground; direct current is passed through the rod to the earth, and then through the iron pipe or structure, in a direction opposite to that resulting from the electrochemical properties of the soil.

anode

1. the positive electrode in an electrolytic cell
2. the positively charged electrode in an electronic valve
3. the negative terminal of a primary cell

anode

The terminal on a device that receives current. It may be considered positive or negative depending on the application. See cathode.

Lab tests showed that pomegranate anodes worked well when made in the thickness required for commercial battery performance.
Silicon anodes could store 10 times more charge than the graphite anodes in today's rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, but they also have major drawbacks: The brittle silicon swells and falls apart during battery charging, and it reacts with the battery's electrolyte to form gunk that coats the anode and degrades its performance.
The company said it has identified key advantages of its technology in aluminium production as virtually eliminating CO2 emissions, which currently create 7-10 lb CO2 for every lb of aluminum produced, enabling 3x-5x higher production output per footprint and reducing the cost by halving the energy required and eliminating the need for consumable graphite anodes.
Built to ASME standards, it will house two copper anodes and one ferrous anode to protect the vessel's pipework which is made from cupro-nickel.
In previous studies, Liion batteries with graphite anodes exhibited good energy density but low power density, because lithium ions could only physically enter or exit the graphite anode from the edges, and slowly work their way across the layers of graphene.
