A one-year laboratory study was performed to determine the ability of seven oxidants to oxidize As(III) to As(V). These included chlorine, permanganate, ozone, chlorine dioxide, monochloramine, a solid-phase oxidizing media, and 254 nm ultraviolet light. Chlorine and permanganate rapidly oxidized As(III) to As(V) in the pH range of 6.3 to 8.3. Dissolved manganese, dissolved iron, sulfide and TOC slowed the rate of oxidation slightly, but essentially complete oxidation was obtained in less than one minute with chlorine and permanganate under all conditions studied.
