an·ode

(ăn′ōd′)
1. The positive electrode in an electrolytic cell, toward which negatively charged particles are attracted. The anode has a positive charge because it is connected to the positively charged end of an external power supply.
2. The negative electrode in a voltaic cell, such as a battery, toward which positively charged particles are attracted. The anode gets its negative charge from the chemical reaction that happens inside the battery, not from an external source. Compare cathode.

anode

Without Pd layer, the oxidation of hydrogen atoms could be incomplete due to the presence of an oxide film that could build up on a metal sample when anodically polarised in an alkaline medium.
According to the Deacon process, traces of chlorine might be formed by reaction with anodically generated oxygen.
Thus, the oxidation process in the synthetic solution might include the oxidation of hydrogen peroxide, chloride to produce active chlorine, TCMTB with anodically electrogenerated species, and the OER (oxygen evolution reaction); therefore, a careful potential control during the process becomes important [29, 30].
