Chlor-alkali industry is one of the largest electrochemical processes which annually producing 70 million tons of sodium hydroxide and chlorine from sodium chloride solution. (Dimensionally Stable Anodes) electrodes such as and , which is popular in chlor-alkali process, have been investigated to improve the chlorine generation efficiency. Although DSA electrode has been developed with various researches, understanding of the chlorine evolution mechanism is essential to the development of highly efficient DSA electrode. In this review paper, chlorine generation mechanisms are summarized and that of key factors are identified to systematically understand the chlorine generation mechanism. Rate determining step, effect of pH, reaction intermediate, and electrode crystal structure were intensively overviewed as key factors of the chlorine mechanism.
