                         heat treatment temperatures of 1000 and 2000 degrees C. Co/CF1000 
                         and Ag/CF1000 presented more uniform particles with higher 
                         densities than those for CF2000. This behavior was attributed to 
                         electrostatic force between Cu2+/Ag+ and C=O functional group 
                         present on CF1000 surface. Nitrate electroreduction was carried 
                         out using Ag/CF or Cu/CF cathode and BDD anode. The 
                         rate-determining step of nitrate reduction was its transformation 
                         into nitrite ions. The best performance for electrochemical 
                         nitrate reduction was achieved using Cu/CF1000 resulting in 100% 
                         of nitrate reduction not to mention its low by-product formation.
