Electrocatalytic Oxidation of Organic Pollutants on Boron-Doped Diamond and Ti–Ru Oxide Anodes in Sulfate Medium

Electrochemical oxidation for degradation of industrial dye Methyl Orange in aqueous sulfate solutions with various electrocatalytic materials: boron-doped diamond electrode and electrode based on titanium and ruthenium oxides. The influence exerted by the main working parameters of electrolysis (current density, concentration of Methyl Orange, pH) on the discoloration efficiency and on the chemical oxygen demand (COD) was examined. It was shown that an increase in the current density and a decrease in the pollutant concentration improve the process efficiency. However, this leads to an increase in the specific electric energy consumption per unit mass of COD. It was found that the boron-doped diamond electrode is a more efficient electrocatalytic material, compared with electrode based on titanium and ruthenium oxides. At low concentrations of Methyl Orange (<50 mg L–1), there exists the possibility in principle of using the electrode based on titanium and ruthenium oxides not only for discoloration, but also for making lower the COD level.
