The low cell voltage during electrolytic Mn from the MnCl2 system can effectively reduce the power consumption. In this work, the Ti/ Sn-Ru-Co-Zr modified anodes were obtained by using thermal decomposition oxidation. The physical parameters of coatings were observed by SEM. Based on the electrochemical performance and SEM/XRD of the coatings, the influences of Zr on electrode performance were studied and analyzed. When the mole ratio of Sn-Ru-Co-Zr = 6:1:0.8:0.3, the cracks on the surface of coatings were the smallest, and the compactness was the best due to the excellent filling effect of ZrO2 nanoparticles. Moreover, the electrode prepared under this condition had the lowest mass transfer resistance and high chloride evolution activity in the 1M NH4Cl + 1.5M HCl system. The service life of 3102 h was achieved according to the empirical formula of accelerated-life-test of the new type anode.
