What is Superoxide?
Superoxide is a type of oxygen molecule that has an extra electron, giving it a negative electrical charge. Superoxide's chemical formula is O2-. This extra electron gives superoxide the ability to remediate any organic pollutant. Organic in this case means a molecule that contains at least one carbon atom. The chemical reaction that occurs is called Fenton chemistry and was discovered in the 1890s.
Examples of pollutants that can be treated are PCBs, oil, dioxanes, PFOAs, benzene, and VOCs. In addition, cyanobacteria, viruses, and anaerobic bacteria are also eliminated. A huge benefit is that there are no "leftover residuals" to dispose of. And, best of all, superoxide is created from the open atmosphere with no chemical input.
