|Title:||Treatment and Decolourisation of an Azo Dye in Industrial Effluent|
|Keywords:||Decolourisation;Azo dye;Industrial effluent|
|Abstract:||The electrochemical behaviour of Orange II is studied voltammetrically using Pt foil and steel foil as working electrodes, while Pt wire and Ag/AgCI were used as auxiliary and reference electrodes respectively. Controlled potential electrolysis was carried out at -1.20 V. The decrease in cathodic peak and peak current lead to decolourisation of solution (2×10-4 m) with a significant decrease in COD from 1840 mg/L to 174 mg/L. Orange II is found to yield a mixture of sulphanilic acid and 1-amino-2-naphthol upon electrochemical reduction. Based on voltammetric and spectrophotometric analysis, rate of the reaction was determined and found to be of first order.|
