Electro catalytic oxidation is a promising methodology for carrying out the elimination of organic compounds from wastewater. For this purpose we use a dimensional stable anode (DSA) based on the Sb/SnO2 nanocrystalin film (ATO) deposed on a titan support. The DSA is a composite material from SnO2 and Sb2O4 In this paper we report the study of DSA based on sensible element of ATO deposed on a titan plate. The characteristics of the film (the morphology, the chemical composition, the mechanical and electrical properties of ATO and the DSA stability in time were investigated by following methods: AFM, XRD, SEM and cyclic voltammetry. The experimental results confirm that the Sb/SnO2/ anode is a good choice for decontamination of wastewater containing organic pollutants by electro-oxidation.
