21 Water Purification: Chemical Treatment: Hydrogen Peroxide:




Description

This article is from the Water Treatment FAQ, by Patton Turner with numerous contributions by others.

21 Water Purification: Chemical Treatment: Hydrogen Peroxide:

Hydrogen Peroxide can be used to purify water if nothing else is
available. Studies have shown of 99 percent inactivation of
poliovirus in 6 hr with 0.3 percent hydrogen peroxide and a 99%
inactivation of rhinovirus with a 1.5% solution in 24 minutes.
Hydrogen Peroxide is more effective against bacteria, though Fe+2 or
Cu+2 needs to be present as a catalyst to get a reasonable
concentration-time product.
