Abstract

The aim of this work was to investigate the approaches to reduce the negative impacts of pesticides on the environment. Specifically, two approaches to electrooxidize bupirimate are compared. The first approach was based on the use of SnO2 electrode. This electrode is a commercial grid of 1cm2 of SnO2. The second approach was based on the use of Boron Doped Diamond (BDD) electrode. The electrolyses were performed by using a solution composed of an electrolyte support NaCl. The effects of current density, NaCl concentration, pH, and pesticide concentration on the rate of chemical oxygen demand (COD) abatement were investigated. The results showed that the rate of the electrooxidation increases with increasing current density and decreasing NaCl. The overall results indicated that BDD electrode exhibited the best performance.
