A process has been developed for the production of structurally stable metal anode called "Titanium Substrate Insoluble Anode' (TSIA) - a technically and economically viable substitute for the conventional graphite electrodes used in electrochemical industries. With a coating of electrocatalytic materials of platinum group metals viz., ruthenium, iridium, palladium, etc. or its oxides or mixtures of oxides of platinum groups metals and valve metals (like Ti, Ta and Zr), the TSIA have better conducting property and dimensional stability, lower overvoltage and longer life. Further these anodes are characterised by good chemical and mechanical stability. Adoption of these TSIA results in lower consumption and purer products. The main users of this type of anodes are the chlor-alkali and chlorates which consumes electrical energy as one of the main raw materials accounting for more than 50% as above production cost. These anodes can also be used (a) in sea water electrolysis for in-situ generation of hypochlorite, (b) electrowinning (c) cathodic protection by impressed current technique (d) electrodialysis (e) electro-organic/inorganic synthesis, etc.
