Practical lead dioxide anodes have been obtained by electrodeposition on glassy carbon and titanium substrates in the presence and in the absence of an ultrasound field. The films obtained by mechanical agitation on glassy carbon are strongly improved when the electrodeposition process is carried out with the ultrasound field, providing adherent deposits(More)
Numerical methods for the calculation of the acoustic field inside sonoreactors have rapidly emerged in the last 15 years. This paper summarizes some of the most important works on this topic presented in the past, along with the diverse numerical works that have been published since then, reviewing the state of the art from a qualitative point of view. In(More)
As one of several types of pollutants in water, chlorinated compounds have been routinely subjected to sonochemical analysis to check the environmental applications of this technology. In this review, an extensive study of the influence of the initial concentration, ultrasonic intensity and frequency on the kinetics, degradation efficiency and mechanism has(More)
Studies on water-splitting p-type oxide electrodes based on nontoxic earth-abundant elements are scarce. Herein, the behavior of electrodes composed of CuFe2 O4 nanoparticles 30 nm in size is presented. The as-prepared CuFe2 O4 nanoporous electrodes exhibit small anodic photocurrents in 0.1 m NaOH. However, an electrochemical pretreatment consisting in the(More)
The development of tandem devices for water photosplitting requires the preparation of photocathodic materials based on earth-abundant elements that show long-term stability in aqueous electrolytes. Ternary metal oxides seem to be a viable option, among which perovskites stand out. In this context, transparent and compact LaFeO3 thin-film electrodes have(More)
Artificial photosynthesis constitutes one of the most promising alternatives for harvesting solar energy in the form of fuels, such as hydrogen. Among the different devices that could be developed to achieve efficient water photosplitting, tandem photoelectrochemical cells show more flexibility and offer high theoretical conversion efficiency. The(More)
The electrochemical degradation of trichloroacetic acid (TCAA) in water has been analysed through voltammetric studies with a rotating disc electrode and controlled-potential bulk electrolyses. The influence of the mass-transport conditions and initial concentration of TCAA for titanium, stainless steel and carbon electrodes has been studied. It is shown(More)
