Effect of moderate pre-oxidation on the removal of Microcystis aeruginosa by KMnO4-Fe(II) process: significance of the in-situ formed Fe(III).


This study developed a novel KMnO(4)-Fe(II) process to remove the cells of Microcystis aeruginosa, and the mechanisms involved in have been investigated. At KMnO(4) doses of 0-10.0 μM, the KMnO(4)-Fe(II) process showed 23.4-53.3% higher efficiency than the KMnO(4)-Fe(III) process did. This was first attributed to the moderate pre-oxidation of M. aeruginosa… (More)
