INFLUENCE OF SUPPORTING ELECTROLYTE AND SUBSTITUENTS ON THE ELECTROCHEMICAL OXIDATION OF SYNTHETIC DYE AND REAL POLLUTED WATERS. Anthuvan Babu, S. Raja, S. Sibi and S. Venkatesan
In this paper the influence of Supporting Electrolyte and Substituents of synthetic dye and real polluted water by electrochemical oxidation method was investigated. Synthetic dye consisting of Fast Blue B Salt (FBBS) was used as a model compound. Electrochemical degradation processes were performed using Graphite as an anode and Stainless Steel (304) as a cathode. In the bulk solution, the strong oxidizing potential of the chemicals were produced when the polluted water was passed through the electrolytic cell. The effect of several experimental parameters: pH, Current, Nature of the supporting electrolyte and substituents at the aromatic ring on the degradation rate were investigated. The decomposition rate increases with the decrease of pH.
