The aim of this work is to introduce bacteria into the matrix of natural phosphate to catalyze the phenol oxidation in the wastewater.This electrode, designated subsequently by bacteria-NP-CPE, Showed stable response and was characterized with voltammeter methods, as cyclic voltammetry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and DRX. The experimental results revealed that the prepared electrode could be a feasible for degradation of hazardous phenol pollutants in the wastewater.
