Electrochemical preparation of peroxodisulfuric acid using boron doped diamond thin film electrodes

Abstract

We have investigated the electrochemical oxidation of sulfuric acid on boron-doped synthetic diamond electrodes (BDD) obtained by HF CVD on p-Si. The results have shown that high current efficiency for sulfuric acid oxidation to peroxodisulfuric acid can be achieved in concentrated H2SO4 ( /2 M) at moderate temperatures (8 /10 8C). The main side reaction is oxygen evolution. Small amounts of peroxomonosulfuric acid (Caro’s acid) have also been detected. A reaction mechanism involving hydroxyl radicals, HSO4 and undissociated H2SO4 has been proposed. According to this mechanism electrogenerated hydroxyl radicals at the BDD anode react with HSO4 and H2SO4 giving peroxodisulfate.
