Removal of various metals is one of the important and widely investigated areas of research. The presence of iron in water imparts reddish colour and undesirable odour. It is difficult to removal iron complexed with other organic and inorganic compounds. It has high solubility in aqueous substances. Common methods used for iron removal includes chemical precipitation, coagulation-flocculation, flotation, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, electrochemical treatment techniques like electro dialysis, membrane electrolysis, electrochemical precipitation, electroextraction. The current review summarizes research and studies on iron removal.

Key words: microfiltration, optimum dose, pH, nanoparticles, concentration.
