Bromate, a toxic by-product of bromide-containing drinking water after disinfecting with ozone, has attracted much attention in the past two decades. Traditional methods to activate zero-valent metals for reducing bromate are to eliminate their surface oxide layer by acid washing. In this work, for the first time, zero-valent Al (ZVAl) was surface treated by the following procedures including soaking, soaking and freeze-drying, soaking and heat-treating, and γ-AlO covering Al particle surfaces (GCAP).
