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.

Washington, June 11 ( ANI ): Researchers have developed a 3-D, silicon-decorated, cone-shaped carbon-nanotube cluster architecture for lithium ion battery anodes that could enable charging of portable electronics in 10 minutes, instead of hours.
Silicon anodes could store 10 times more charge than the graphite anodes in today's rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.
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.
MANAMA: Alba's laboratory was ranked in the top five from a list of 41 laboratories cutting across different smelters from around the world in the final report of the Baked Anode Round Robin 2012-13 conducted by R&D Carbon, Switzerland.
In addition to the reduction of CWO compliance costs, the NDAI method allows for the installation of anodes in a fraction of the time required by conventional methods.
SDK) has started volume production of "Polysol(TM) LB Series" water-based anode binder for lithium ion batteries (LIBs) at its Tatsuno Plant in Tatsuno City, Hyogo Prefecture.
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.
Among the challenges for binder materials are that the anodes must allow for the expansion and contraction of the silicon nanoparticles, and that existing electrodes use a polyvinylidene fluoride binder manufactured using a toxic solvent.
This research focuses on the production of one of those five parts, which is the anode.
FATA had built the Casthouse and Anode Baking Plant of Qatalum's primary aluminium smelter at Mesaieed at a cost of $500 million.
