NOVELTY – The diamond-anode-reactor-based oxidation of organic compounds has circulation of solution containing the organic compounds between the electrodes coated with diamond doped with boron. Then electrical discharge of water at the anode initiates the oxidation with production of hydroxyl radicals and initiation of discharge of water at the diamond surface and oxidation of the organic compounds in this. EMBODIMENT – The current applied is increased together with the speed of recirculation of the solution in the reactor. USE – In applied chemistry.
