In the present paper we studied the oxidation of ferrous sulfate salt with oxygen. ferric ammonium sulfate and ferrous sulfate were used to prepare standard solutions of Fe(III) and Fe(II) solutions. Oxidation experiments were carried out by mixing FeSO4·7 H2O in H2O. Air was supplied using a gas washing bottle in which air entered the bottle through the center tube, and exited into the bottom of the bottle. Samples were taken periodically and analyzed in the UV-Vis spectrophotometer. We consider that basic Fe(III) sulfate was one of the main compounds produced during the reaction and proposed a model to describe the process. We found solution to the differential equations that described the profile of FeSO4 and FwOHSO4 concentration in time and observed agreement between the experimental results and data predicted by the model. Moreover, we determined values of rate constants using the model and confirmed the determined values by means of experiments. This suggests that basic ferric sulfate was generated after aeration of ferrous sulfate solution.
