AN

The two-character ISO 3166 country code for NETHERLANDS ANTILLES.

AN

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for Netherlands Antilles prior to its separation into Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba, Curacao, and Sint Maarten in 2011. This was the code used in international transactions to and from bank accounts in Netherlands Antilles.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Netherlands Antilles. This was used as an international standard for shipping to Netherlands Antilles.

In both cases, the code is obsolete.

A primary benefit vacuum excavators bring to cathodic protection work is their capability of making relatively small excavations to access structures where anodes must be installed.
These high performance anode materials include soft carbon, and hard carbon, which are based on carbon like Si-based anode materials, Sn-based anode materials, LTO-based anode materials and graphite, but do not have the multi-layer crystal structure of graphite.
In recent years, due to falling cell price and fiercer competition in anode materials market in China, the prices and profits of anode materials in China continued to slide, and the trend is expected to last for the next three years.
Kung's team also used a chemical oxidation process to create miniscule holes (10 to 20 nanometers) in the graphene sheets -- termed "in-plane defects" -- so the lithium ions would have a "shortcut" into the anode and be stored there by reaction with silicon.
SGL Group will provide its broad manufacturing capabilities and technology expertise in Europe while Hitachi Chemical, as the leading supplier with the world's leading market share in anode material for lithium-ion batteries for mobile devices, will contribute through its research and development capabilities as well as its product and application competence.
When a plating cell contains copper anodes and a copper cathode (circuit board) in a plating electrolyte, an equilibrium potential exists between the anode and cathode.
The secret to maintaining the corrosion protection is to maintain the sacrificial anode rod.
Specific erosion of copper anode depends upon accuracy of maintaining operation conditions, which ensure diffusion character of the arc tying to anode.
The peptide binds to cobalt, which, in its oxidized form, has more energy-storage capacity than does the carbon in the negative electrodes, called anodes, used in commercial batteries.
The growing demand for smartphone batteries, whose capacity is more than 3,000mAh, and the many tablets and ultra PCs which are also adopting high capacity lithium polymer batteries of more than 4,000mA, will ensure the demand for anode materials will experience a significant increase also.
As of 2011, more than 97% of LIB anode material consumption is occupied by graphite.
At the same time, the aluminum anode produces ions which suppress corrosion inside the pipework.
