The electrodegradation of the Acid Yellow 49 dye (100 mg L-1 in 0.1 mol L-1 Na2SO4) was investigated using boron-doped diamond (BDD), Ti-Pt/beta-PbO2, and Ti/RuO2-TiO2 (DSA (R)) anodes. Galvanostatic electrolyses (5, 15 or 30 mA cm(-2)) were carried out in an electrochemical flow system, with a filter-press reactor. Best performances were attained with the BDD anode and worst with the DSA (R) anode. The dye solution was adequately decolorized using an electrical charge per unit volume of dye solution (Q(apl)) slightly higher than 0.60 A h L-1, applied with the BDD anode at a current density of only 5 mA cm-2. At this current density, COD and TOC abatements of 37% and 20% were attained with Q(apl) values of only 0.60 and 1.20 A h L-1, respectively; this indicates the feasibility of abating the organic load of the dye solution by simply increasing the value of Q(apl).
