Abstract

Catalytic effect of the ferric hydroxides on the oxidation of ferrous iron by aeration has been demonstrated and the kinetics of this catalytic reaction has been formulated by the recent studies. It has been reported that the oxidation rate is linearly increasing with Fe(III) concentrations up to 100 mg/l.
