|摘要:||The degradation of azo dye Orange G (OG) on TiO2/Ti electrode was studied using a photoelectrocatalytic system. TiO2/Ti electrode was prepared by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) process. Results of surface analyses, namely, X-ray diffraction (XRD), SEM, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and linear sweep voltammetry (LSV), revealed that the optimal EPD condition was a deposition potential of 180 V for 1 min and annealed at 350 degrees C. The TiO2/Ti electrode was used as photoanode and a graphite cathode for the degradation of OG. The coupling effect of photocatalytic and electrochemical oxidation processes was evaluated in terms of the decolorization of OG. The degradation of OG increased in the following increasing order: photocatalysis < electrochemical oxidation < photoelectrochemical degradation. A decolorization of 54.3% was achieved at an applied current density of 75 A cm(-2). The degradation of Orange G follows the first-order kinetics in those three treatment processes, which suggests the participation of OH radicals in the decolorization reaction. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V.
