Book Description

Offering a comprehensive view, Nanomaterials for Water Treatment and Remediation explores recent developments in the use of advanced nanomaterials (ANMs) for water treatment and remediation. In-depth reaction mechanisms in water treatment technologies including adsorption, catalysis, and membrane filtration for water purification using ANMs are discussed in detail. It includes investigation of fabrication processes of nanostructured materials and fundamental aspects of surface at the nanoscale. The book also covers removal of water-borne pathogens and microbes through a photochemical approach.

  • Explains various chemical treatments for the removal and separation of hazardous dyes, organic pollutants, pharmaceuticals, and heavy metals from aqueous solutions, including adsorption, advanced oxidation process, and photocatalysis
  • Discusses rational design of nanoporous materials with tunable pore structure and fabrication of nanomaterials by surface chemistry engineering
  • Covers the role of nanomaterials-assisted oxidation and reduction processes, design of nano-assisted membrane-based separation, and multifunctional nanomaterials and nanodevices for water treatment
  • Provides an understanding of the structure-activity relationship and stability of ANMs under critical experimental conditions
  • Identifies potential challenges in application of multifunctional ANMs for future research

Detailing an innovative approach, this text is aimed at researchers and industry professionals in chemical, materials, and environmental engineering, as well as related fields, interested in application of advanced materials to water treatment and remediation.
