The electrochemical nitrate reduction by using boron-doped diamond (BDD) and copper modified boron-doped diamond (Cu-BDD) electrodes was investigated at various potentials. Nitrate reduction efficiency and the products distribution was strongly dependent on the applied potential for both electrodes. The highest nitrate reduction efficiency of 77% was obtained at −2.0 V (vs. Ag/AgCl) by using Cu-BDD. Compared with BDD electrode, nitrate reduction on Cu-BDD electrode occurred at more positive potential. Copper oxides formed on BDD surface efficiently promoted enhanced conductivity of electrode to promote electrons transfer during nitrate reduction process. Meanwhile, the catalytic ability of copper was also conductive to the nitrate transformation. Therefore, the developed Cu-BDD would be a promising approach for efficient nitrate removal from groundwater.
