dc.description.abstract Escherichia coli contamination is a continuing issue in the developing world. Lack of funding and difficulty in instituting new projects makes it necessary to discover an affordable, low-cost alternative to traditional methods of sanitation. Recent studies have shown that the hydroxyl radical, which is known to be produced from iron-bearing minerals through the Fenton reaction, can be damaging to both single-celled and multi-cellular organisms. Using hydroxyl radicals produced from low-cost, common materials would be a viable solution to the problem of contamination. It is proposed that using inexpensive, wide-spread, iron-rich materials to produce the hydroxyl radicals could lead to a new method of sanitation adaptable to various situations. en_US
