Abstract

Copper species immobilization in hollow rectangular-sectioned microtubes of polypyrrole (PPy) electrosynthesized on 316L stainless steel was carried out using two different methods. One of them involved the immobilization after the PPy electropolymerization and the other one during the electrosynthesis process. The electrodes modified with copper species were rotated at different speeds in well water under open-circuit potential conditions. The release of copper species from the PPy matrix and the antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli were analyzed. The obtained results demonstrate that the amount of copper species released as well as the bactericidal effects against E. coli increases with rotation speed. The PPy coating modified with copper species after the electropolymerization reaction exhibited the best performance in terms of antibacterial activity and corrosion protection. These electrodes were tested in a lab-scale continuous flow system for well water disinfection.Fil: González, Belén. Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas.
