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

This involved recording the current at a platinum electrode as the potential (voltage) is cycled from an initial cathodic potential to an anodic turning point then progressively returned to the starting point.
6) for the metal complex showed that with the increase of scan rate peak, current for both cathodic and anodic peaks increases.
4) that as the concentration of the Cu2+ increases the extant of reaction increases [24 25] so that more electrons are transferred and both anodic and cathodic current increase.

The heterogeneous rate constants ([k.sup.0]) were calculated from the difference of anodic and cathodic peak potentials, obtained for the same experiments used to obtain the electroactive area.
In the authors' opinion, the two-stage variant of the process finds reflection on anodic and cathodic CVA branches.
