Abstract Three novel modified advanced oxidation process systems including ascorbic acid‐, pro‐oxidants‐ and ascorbic acid‐pro‐oxidants‐modified Fenton system were utilized to study the disinfection efficiency on Cryptosporidium‐contaminated drinking water samples. Different concentrations of divalent and trivalent iron ions, hydrogen peroxide, ascorbic acid and pro‐oxidants at different exposure times were investigated. These novel systems were also compared to the classic Fenton system and to… Expand
Photo-Fenton disinfection at near neutral pH: Process, parameter optimization and recent advances
