The feasibility of electrochemical hydrodehalogenation (HDH) of 2,4-dibromophenol (DBP) in paraffin oil has been evaluated for short or long operation periods of up to 170h. HDH has been performed successfully using a solid polymer electrolyte reactor in a batch recycle mode with a dilute H 2SO4 aqueous solution as the anode feed and source of protons. The work reported in this paper expands the application of electrochemical HDH from aqueous systems to non-conductive media. The effect of the operating conditions, including current density, reactant concentration and temperature, is evaluated. The results are compared with those achieved in the aqueous solutions. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
