ABSTRACT
The novel behavior of ferrate(Vl) has received an increased attention for its possible applications in various purposes particularly in the treatment of waste/effluent waters. It possess relatively high oxidizing capacity and the reduced ferrate(VI) into Fe(III) again an important and useful precipitant, coagulant, flocculants and likely to be a good adsorbent via the formation of ferric hydroxide for various metal cations. Moreover, the non-toxic effect makes it a 'green chemical' and further enhances its widespread uses in various purposes. Here an attempt has been made to review the applications of ferrate(Vl) in the treatment of waste waters and also its possible future applications in the wastewater treatment technology.
Keywords: Ferrate(Vl) | wastewater treatment | oxidant | coagulant
