The premise of this research note is that current research on metallic iron (Fe0) for environmental remediation and water treatment has started on a biased basis. Before expecting experienced researchers to correct flawed approaches compromising the future of the technology, the attention of new researchers should be drawn on the prevailing flawed conceptual models. There are guides on how to select good research topics, to perform good literature review, to select good mentors, and to write good scientific papers. But critically reviewing the published material is part of the competence of any new researcher in a given field of research. This research note summarizes the most critical issues of research on Fe0 for water treatment as asks some key questions which would help research beginners to find their way.
