Electrochemical degradation of amoxicillin in acidic aqueous medium using TiO2-based electrodes modified by oxides of transition metals

One of the most widely used antibiotics is amoxicillin, which is the most widely used in humans and animals, but it is discharged metabolically due to its indigestibility

Scholarcy highlights

  • One of the most widely used antibiotics is amoxicillin, which is the most widely used in humans and animals, but it is discharged metabolically due to its indigestibility
  • In this research, naked and modified surfaces with TiO2 nanotubes electrophoretically modified with PbO2, IrO2, RuO2, and Ta2O5 were used to evaluate their efficiency in the electrochemical degradation of AMX in acid media
  • Treviño thank CONACyT for their Postgraduate scholarship
  • After their comparison, Pb-Ta 50:50|TiO2,nt|Ti showed the highest removal efficiency of AMX with the lowest specific energy consumption and the average instant current efficiency of 26.67 ± 9.19%, in comparison with the others naked and modified surfaces of TiO2,nt∣Ti
  • EB proposed the idea of this research, organized, wrote, and made the conjunction of all the discussions of results with all the co-authors
  • All authors reviewed and approved the final manuscript
