Active chlorine species electrogenerated on Ti/Ru0.3Ti0.7O2 surface: Electrochemical behavior, concentration determination and their application
Keywords: water treatment, active chlorine, electrochemical behavior, dsa anode, Oxidants determination
In the present work, the evolution of chlorine-related species was investigated by cyclic voltammetric, polarization and electrolytic analyses in order to establish whether their formation and consumption related to either chemical or electrochemical reactions. This study was performed at Ti/Ru0.3Ti0.7O2 anode by adding known concentrations of Cr in solution by applying different current densities. The results demonstrated that dissolved Cl-2, HClO, ClO-, chlorite, chlorine dioxide and chlorate can be electrochemically formed. The concentration trends of dissolved Cl- and chlorite indicated that the electrochemical route was responsible for their presence in the bulk solution, and these active species are responsible of the formation of the other chlorine species. By using Ti/Ru0.3Ti0.2O2 as anode, the efficient treatment of real effluent was favored by applying 25, 50 and 75 mA cm(-2) in presence of NaCl (1.25 g L-1), achieving higher elimination of organic matter, ranging from 80% to 86%. Results clearly have demonstrated that the oxygen evolution inhibition depends predominantly on the specific electrochemical species formed in association with pH, nature of electrode and applied current.
