Abstract: In the present study, the electrochemical oxidation experiment was conducted for the decolourization of procion red mx5b dye. A number of batch experiments were run in a laboratory-scale that was analyzed at every 15 min regular intervals, for a total period of 60 min. The results are reported in terms of percentage removal Color. Synthetic effluent was treated with electrochemical oxidation having the stainless steel as anode and cathode. The effects of operational parameters such as current density, Effect of dye concentration (2, 5, 7, 9, 11 ppm) and effect of pH (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12) on the decolourization of procion red mx5b dye was studied at optimistic condition i. e.25V. It was observed that highest decolourization (99 %) was achieved for 2 ppm concentration of procion red mx5b dye. It can be concluded from the results that SS as anode found to be effective in treating this electrolyte and could be effectively used for pretreatment.
