17-alpha-ethinylestradiol (EE(2)) as one of typical representatives of steroid estrogens is detrimental to endocrine systems of animals and humans due to its potential estrogenic activity. The degradation of EE(2) in aquatic solution by electrocatalytic oxidation applying Ti-based SnO(2) (Ti/SnO(2)) electrode as the anode was investigated. A pseudo-first-order kinetics under various initial concentrations of EE(2) was obtained and it was found that the calculated kinetic constant was determined… CONTINUE READING
