Abstract

This study seeks to find a new method to enhance the percentage of boron removed from aqueous solution by using the electrocoagulation process in the presence of curcumin. The optimum current density (CD), pH and dose of curcumin were determined as the operational parameters. The results showed that boron removal increased when CD was increased to 6.0 mA/cm 2 from 1.0 mA/cm 2. In our laboratory-scale reactor, the optimum pH and curcumin dose for the aqueous boron solution before electrocoagulation were 4.0 and 0.05 g, respectively. Electrocoagulation aided by curcumin removed was 20% more boron than the unaided electrocoagulation process.
