As an ideal anode material, Boron-doped diamond (BDD) has been widely applied in electro-chemical oxidation of various organic pollutants, for its unique physical and chemical properties. In this paper, the authors studied the degradation of bromophenol blue through the electrochemical anodic oxidation by using the boron-doped BDD as the anode. The effect of statistically important operating parameters on treatment per-formance, such as treatment time, flow rate, applied current and concentration of supporting electrolyte, was evaluated by employing a factorial design analysis in terms of color removal and COD removal amount. As a result, the BDD technology was approved to be highly effective in treating bromophenol blue. Moreover, the results revealed the applicability and potential of factorial design analysis in operating parameters optimization and practical engineering application of BDD technology.
Key words: boron-doped diamond electrode / electrochemical degradation / bromophenol blue / factorial design analysis
