The CeO2-modified PbO2 on Ti plate ( Ti/CeO2-F-PbO2) was prepared by electrodeposition. The SEM and XRD analyses indicated that the CeO2 particle could be beuniformly co-deposited in the film of PbO2. The results of electrochemical test showed that the Ti/CeO2-F-PbO2 anode had higher potential ( 1. 83 V. vs. SCE) for oxygen evolution ( OE) than the Ti/F-PbO2 anode ( 1. 78 V,vs. SCE) . The degradation of 4-chlorophenol was carried out to test electrocatalytic performance of this novel electrode,which indicated that Ti/CeO2-F-PbO2 anode had high COD removal rate and instantaneous current efficiencies ( ICE) .
