The electrolysis of amoxicillin (AMX) was carried out on CNT, Pt/CNT and Ru/CNT modified electrodes based on Carbon Toray in 0.1 M NaOH, 0.1 M NaCl and 0.1 M Na2CO3/NaHCO3 buffer (pH 10) media with the aim of studying the significance of two factors, electrode material and pH, on the oxidative degradation and mineralization of AMX. For this purpose, the electrolysis products were identified by HPLC-MS and GC-MS, and quantified by HPLC-UV-RID and IC. The highest carbon mineralization efficiency, corresponding to 30 % of the oxidized AMX, was found for Pt/CNT modified electrode in carbonate buff ...
