Electrochemistry of aqueous amine systems

Aqueous amines solutions are widely used for the purification of various hydrocarbon mixtures of carbon- and sulfur-containing contaminations. The most popular way of utilization of such contaminants as sulfur hydrides and oxides in petrol industry is today the so-called Claus process, in which thermal destruction and oxidation of sulfur compounds is used. One of more effective alternative solutions may lie in an electrochemical pathway of the treatment of contaminated amine systems.
