Industrial chlor-alkali electrolysis represents one of the most energy- and resource-intensive technological applications of electrocatalysis. Improving process efficiency becomes a critical issue for the sustainable development and for alleviating the energy and environmental crisis. Rational design in the morphology of RuO2-based anodic electrocatalytic coatings and the control in the coating microstructure can contribute to massive energy saving compared to the current commercial Ru0.3Ti0.7O2 coating. This review covers recent developments in the anodic coatings. Performance enhancement for RuO2-based anodic coatings is achieved by using alternative preparation routes of sol-gel and electrodeposition. The target control in the coating surface morphologies and the increase in the utilization of active Ru species are demonstrated.

Keywords: Electrocatalyst; Chlor-Alkali Electrolysis; DSA; RuO2; Coating
