We have investigated the effects of the etching method of a Ti substrate for a metal oxide electrode on the electrochemical characteristics of the electrode. The preparation method and electrochemical characterization of zirconium oxide films on etched Ti substrate has been also studied. The HCl etching was developed a fine and homogeneous roughness on the Ti substrate. Fabrication and material properties of the metal oxide electrode, which is known to be so effective to generate ozone and sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) as power oxidant, were studied. A proper metal oxide material focus zirconium oxide through reference paper. A coating method to enhance the fabrication reproducibility of the zirconium oxide electrode was used dip-coating method by zirconium oxychloride. Zirconium oxide films on the Ti substrate were analyzed by SEM, XPS and cyclic voltammetry.
