Abstract

A method of oxidative mineralization of the salicylic acid and its derivatives as well as medicinal products containing salicylic acid as the active ingredient was investigated. Destruction of the organic compounds is possible both in the electrolyte under the oxidant, electrochemically formed in situ in the sulphuric acid solutions, and at the anode so. Simultaneously, at the cathode, reduction of the zinc ions, contained in a number of medicinal products, is possible. Final products of the oxidation are simple non-toxic organic compounds, carbon dioxide, and water. This process is the most effective in the 40% sulphuric acid at the current density of 0.5–0.8 A/cm2 and the temperature of 30–50 °C.
