Abstract

Boron-doped diamond (BDD) electrochemical oxidation has been widely applied to the degradation of various organic pollutants, because BDD possesses unique physical and chemical properties as an ideal anode material. In this work, the degradation of ethidium bromide was studied by the electrochemical anodic oxidation through the use of BDD electrode. The effect of varoius operating parameters, such as treatment time, flow rate, applied current, initial concetration and concentration of supporting electrolyte, on treatment performance was evaluated by implementing a factorial design methodology. As a result, BDD exhibited high effeciency in the degradation of ethidium bromide. Among the five parameters involved, treatment time, applied current and initial concentration had considerable effects on the treatment performance In additon, the results suggested that the factorial design methodology showed great applicability in the parameter optimization of BDD treatment technology.
