In this study the performance of an electrochemical cell with a solid polymer electrolyte (SPE) has been investigated using Safranin T, a synthetic dye, as a model compound. The cell consists of a Nafion membrane sandwiched between a BDD mesh anode and a Ti/RuO2 mesh cathode operating at constant current. The effects of operating conditions such as applied current, stirring rate and electrolyte conductivity were studied. The experimental results showed that Safranin T was completely removed by reaction with [rad]OH radicals generated by water electrolysis and that the oxidation was under charge-transfer control. Furthermore, it was observed that addition of Na2SO4 to the solution decreased the removal rate but also decreased the specific energy required for the process.
