Abstract: It is impressive how lengthy the list of chemical technologies based on redox phenomena is and the treatment objectives one can achieve based solely on redox chemistry. This paper provides an overview of oxidation-reduction processes used for the transformation and destruction of targeted water contaminants. The most important oxidation-reduction reagents are further discussed here and classified in three general categories. Key characteristics of each technology are also underlined.
