One of the most promising methods emerging from the European FP7 project SecurEau for drinking water distribution system disinfection is based on Fenton's reaction. This reaction appears as a non‐expensive and friendly environmental method. The process is known to generate powerful oxidative species as hydroxyl radicals HO. through a succession of reactions involving iron and hydrogen peroxide at acidic pH.
