    Currently I am a high school junior in Egypt and I have a project this semester to solve the water problem in Egypt from any aspect whether scarcity, pollution or desalination or overuse in agriculture. and I thought of using ferrite chemical FeO3 to attract the ions in water and then attract all of this with magnets , is this possible ?

    Well, that's certainly some creative thinking. I can't comment on its efficacy.

    If this doesn't prove to be practical, an alternative you might investigate is extracting water from the air, even desert air. Lots of hits on google, here's an overview: http://www.ecofriend.com/10-interesting-ways-to-harvest-water-from-air.html Solar powered, or wind powered, should be mandatory safety equipment for every desert & ocean traveller!
