Iron particles present in drinking water distribution systems (DWDSs) could cause discoloration, while organic pollutants in DWDSs, such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), could be enriched by iron particles. However, little is known about the enhanced effects of PFOA and iron particles in DWDSs. To fill in these knowledge gaps, herein, iron-PFOA (FEP) particles were generated using residual chlorine as an oxidant in drinking water conditions and then separated into different sizes (ranging from small to large: FEP-S, FEP-M and FEP-L).
