Cyanides are potential pollutants even in traces and regulations limiting the cyanide concentration in industrial effluents down at 0.2 pprn and the permissible tolerance for inland surface waters at 0.01 Dpm have been specified. Several investigations on the electrooxidation of cyanide in the effluent have been reported in literature Use of three dimensional electrodes has been the recent development in this area of research. In the present paper, a comparison of packed bed electrode cells of different configurations has been made for the anodic oxidation of cyanide. The initial concentration of electrolyte has been maintained at cyanide 200 pprn and NaCl 5 gpl. It has been observed that the packed bed cells of flow-bypassconfiguration function better than the flow through cells
