Electrochemical degradation of methylene blue dye using a graphite doped PbO2 anode: Optimization of operational parameters, degradation pathway and improving the biodegradability of textile wastewater

An anodic oxidation process with graphite anode coated with lead dioxide (G/β-PbO2) was optimized for the degradation of methylene blue (MB) and the treatment of real textile wastewater. The G/β-PbO2 anode was prepared by the electrochemical precipitation method. The scanning electron microscopy (SE...
