Abstract

Fenton's Oxidation was analyzed for use in the disinfection of drinking water. Varying amounts of hydrogen peroxide and iron sulfate were added to pathogen contaminated water. Kinetic parameters were determined for the system and used to determine the dose of Fenton's reagents needed to disinfect water to current regulatory standards. Fenton's oxidation was determined to be a feasible method of drinking water disinfection.
