You could try oxidation, although tbh its not a biological action. However chlorine is used to disinfect swiming pools. Bromine is used to disinfect skin before operations. Iodine is used to disinfect water on majorly macho hiking trips (see lifessytems iodine drops, although they also stock chlorine tabs too).
