BENVENUTI, Tatiane et al. EVALUATION OF DIRECT PHOTOLYSIS, ELECTROOXIDATION AND PHOTOELECTROOXIDATION FOR RHODAMINE-B DEGRADATION. Braz. J. Chem. Eng. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.3, pp.957-968. ISSN 1678-4383.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0104-6632.20180353s20170032.

The focus of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of oxidation processes in the treatment of a solution containing Rhodamine-B (RhB) used in various industrial applications. The advanced oxidation processes of electrooxidation (EO) and photoelectrooxidation (PEO) were used. At the same time, direct photolysis (DP) was also applied. Total organic carbon (TOC) reduction and color removal were evaluated. There was an efficient color removal when DP was performed, and the color removal efficiency was the highest when NaCl was used as supporting electrolyte for PEO and EO. However, the TOC reduction was low, indicating that the degradation of the color does not correspond to the pollutant mineralization.
