Abstract Basic yellow 28 (SLY) and Reactive black 5 (CBWB), which are respectively methine and sulfoazo textile dyes were individually exposed to electrochemical treatment using diamond-, aluminium-, copper- and iron-zinc alloy electrodes. The generated current was registered with time during electrolysis of the dye solutions and the color variation and the formation of degradation products were followed using HPLC with diode array detection. Four different electrodic materials were tested by applying different potentials in the range -1.0 to -2.5 V and presented 95\% color removal and COD removal of up to 65-67\% in the case of CBWB dye solution treated with the copper and iron electrodes. Efficiency was enhanced with stirring and flow in relation to the stationary regime. The kinetic parameter reaction rate was used to establish the effect of flow, potential, electrode nature and pH. The formation and characterization of the precipitate formed under certain conditions is reported and discussed.
