In many parts of the world there are people living without basic human necessities such as clean water. Safely and cheaply decontaminating drinking water is a pressing need in those countries and this paper explores one possible solution for disinfecting water using iron. Iron in the form of Fe(VI) and Fe(V) are powerful oxidants that can potentially disinfect and decontaminate wastewaters without producing harmful by-products.
