anode

 [an´ōd]
the electrode at which oxidation occurs and to which anions are attracted. adj., adj ano´dal.

an·ode

(an'ōd),
1. The positive pole of a galvanic battery or the electrode connected with it; an electrode toward which negatively charged ions (anions) migrate (for example, in electrophoresis); a positively charged electrode. Compare: cathode.
2. The portion, usually made of tungsten, of an x-ray tube from which x-rays are released by bombardment by cathode rays (electrons).
Synonym(s): positive electrode

anode (an´ōd),

n the electrically positive terminal of a roentgen ray (radiographic) tube; a tungsten block embedded in a copper stem and set at an angle of 20° or 45° to the cathode. The anode emits roentgen rays (radiographs) from the point of impact of the electronic stream from the cathode.
anode, rotating,
n an anode that rotates during radiograph production to present a constantly different focal spot to the electron stream and to permit use of small focal spots or higher tube voltages without overheating the tube.

anode

the positive electrode or pole to which negative ions are attracted.
The stationary anode in an x-ray tube is a solid bar of copper with an inset of tungsten on the face of the bar opposite the cathode filament. The tungsten target has a high melting point to withstand the intense heat of the x-ray beam—the copper conducts the heat away.

anode-film distance
see focal-film distance.
rotating anode
an x-ray tube in which the anode rotates when x-rays are being produced. This means that there is a larger effective target surface of the anode which can be available to generate x-rays.
stationary anode
a non-rotating anode in an x-ray tube so that the target surface is comparatively small.

This deviation from unity may be due to the interaction among the adsorbed species on the metal surface and also due to the nonhomogeneous surface conditions of the alloy, has been postulated in the derivation of the Langmuir isotherm equation that adsorbed molecules do not interact with one another, but this is not true in the case of organic molecules having polar atoms or groups which are adsorbed on the cathodic and anodic sites of the metal surface.
The anodic oxidation of process factors optimization has been accelerated because of the need for improvements of process quality.
SPC engineers discovered that, by partially converting the amorphous oxide anodic coating into microcrystalline structures, they could significantly change the rate of solubility of the coating in the presence of strong hydroxides and acids or other strong chemistries found in cleaning detergents--without changing the other coating properties.
Some of the earliest commercial anodic ED coatings were automotive primers based on natural oils with conjugated double bonds (such as dehydrated castor oil and linseed oil) that were reacted with maleic anhydride.

Into the anode there are two horizontal and one vertical holes in order to assure a good eviction of the anodic gases and to improve electrolyte's circulation.
Examples of specific topics include nitrogen-containing organofluorine compounds through metathesis reactions, highly diastereoselective anodic fluorination, functional compounds based on hypervalent sulfur fluorides, synthesis of macrolactam marine natural products using fluorous protecting groups, solvent-peptide interaction in fluoroalcohol-water mixtures, and synthesis and conformational analysis of fluorine-containing oligopeptides.
saves the expense of an anode, and labor cost of anodic cell monitoring maintenance, as well as giving you the confidence to know you're not degrading the system with a metallic fitting.
