Degradation of toxic dyes in colored wastewaters poses a major problem in the textile industry. In this study electrochemical incineration of such dyes is investigated, using Pt electrodes coated with a mixed metal oxide film of IrO2-SnO2-Sb2O5. The films were prepared using the Pechini method and used in an electrochemical flow cell reactor to oxidize organic material under different conditions in order to evaluate their application.
