Book Description

Nanomaterials for Environmental Applications offers a comprehensive review of the latest advances in nanomaterials-based technologies for the treatment of emerging contaminants in wastewater. It describes the latest developments in synthesis protocols, including synthesis of different kinds of nanostructure materials using various physical and chemical methods.

  • Discusses the synthesis and characterization of important nanomaterials such as carbon nanostructures, metal and metal oxide nanostructures, polymer nanostructures, and smart 1-3D nanomaterials
  • Presents the latest techniques used in the characterization of nanomaterials
  • Covers environmental applications including the remediation of pollutants in wastewater and water purification and disinfection
  • Examines sources, fate, transport, and ecotoxicology of nanomaterials in the environment

Aimed at researchers and industry professionals, this work will be of interest to chemical, environmental, and materials engineers concerned with the application of advanced materials for environmental and water remediation.
