Abstract

The aim of this project is the development and application of nanostructured materials for advanced oxidation processes used in conjunction with electrochemical processes in order to treat water contaminated with benzene and / or furans. Co/C, W/C and Ce/C electrocatalysts will be prepared by the polymeric precursor method and characterized by physical techniques such as X ray diffraction (XRD), Energy Dispersive X-Ray (EDX) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). The efficiency of electrocatalysts will be first evaluated by voltammetric techniques (linear sweep voltammetry for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) using a rotating ring-disk electrode). Subsequently, the degradation efficiency will be determined by initial and final concentrations of organic pollutants and, for this, the following techniques will be used for quantification: Gas Chromatography Coupled Mass Spectrometer (GC-MS), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and measurements of the concentration of total dissolved organic carbon (TOC). The possible dissolution of the catalysts will be evaluated by spectrophotommetry techniques like UV-Visible and / or Atomic Absorption Spectrometry with Flame Atomization and Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission. The project aims to achieve better results for oxidation of benzene and furans combined with the lower costs of treatment, operation and mineralization, using nanostructured materials. (AU)
