Removal of o-nitrophenol from water by electrochemical degradation using a lead oxide/titanium modified electrode.J Environ Manage. 2008 Jan; 86(1):291-6.JE
This study examined o-nitrophenol removal from aqueous solutions by electrochemical oxidation employing a modified electrode. The modified electrode was produced by electrodepositing lead oxide onto a titanium substrate. Following electrochemical oxidation of o-nitrophenol-containing solutions, the remaining o-nitrophenol concentration and chemical oxygen demand (COD) values were determined. The optimum parameters were current density of 40 mA cm(-2), pH of 2.47, 60 min of electrolysis time, 4 g L(-1) NaCl electrolyte solution and temperature of 30 degrees C. Under these optimum conditions of electrochemical degradation using a lead oxide/titanium modified electrode complete removal of o-nitrophenol and COD was achieved.
