Abstract: In this paper the potentiality of two types of DSAâ commercial electrodes, for electrochemical treatment of effluents, is investigated. Oxide anodes, with nominal composition of 70TiO2/30RuO2 and 45IrO2/55Ta2O5, were used in a flow-cell reactor for the electrooxidation of phenol. Comparative results were presented as phenol concentration decay as a function of electrolysis time, as well as COD and TOC concentration reduction. The cell reactor was operated at current densities, ranging from 15 to 150 mA cm-2 and solution linear velocity was 0.24 m s-1. Results reported in this paper showed that phenol and quinones were degraded to a very low concentration, besides only a small portion of the organic carbon is reduced. Starting from 100 mg L-1, after five hours of electrolysis at 100 mA cm-2, concentrations reached 0.4 mg L-1 of phenol, 1 mg L-1 of hydroquinone, 7 mg L-1 of benzoquinone and TOC was reduced by 35%.
Neste trabalho foi realizado um estudo visando a potencial aplicação de dois eletrodos comerciais tipo DSAâ no tratamento eletroquímico de efluentes aquosos. Anodos com composição superficial 70TiO2/30RuO2 e 45IrO2/55Ta2O5 foram usados num reator de fluxo com densidades de corrente de 15 a 150 e velocidade da solução de 0,24 m.s-1. Os resultados mostram que fenol e as quinonas são degradados até concentrações muito baixas, embora apenas uma pequena fração seja mineralizada. A partir de uma solução com 100 mg.L-1 de fenol, a 100, após cinco horas de eletrólise foram encontrados 0,4 mg.L-1 de fenol, 1 mg.L-1 de hidroquinona e 7 mg.L-1 de benzoquinona. TOC foi reduzido em 35%.
