Ferrate(VI) (FeVIO4 2-, Fe(VI)) ion is an environmentally-friendly chemical for water treatment, which can perform a dual function of oxidation and disinfection and forms a non-toxic byproduct, iron(III). This chapter presents an assessment of the potential of ferrate(VI) to oxidize antibiotics (A).
