Provides interdisciplinary approach to applying nanomaterials to disinfect water, air and soil.
Environmental applications of nanotechnology have, for decades, been productive in the treatment of surface water, groundwater and wastewater. With emerging nano-based products, nanotechnology continues to deal efficiently with contaminants, including toxic metal ions, organic and inorganic solutes and microorganisms, in water treatment systems. Comprehensively written by experts in the field, Nanomaterials for Environmental Protection presents and covers in depth the various nanomaterial processing methods for water, air, and soil solutions, with an emphasis on environmental risks.
This book is divided into four main sections and provides:
–Background review on nanomaterials’ two-decade study
–Discussion of the characterization and application of unconventional disinfectants, namely antimicrobial nanomaterials
–Special attention to the process of remediation, synthetics techniques, and properties of nanomaterials
–Examples to which readers, with or without afore knowledge of the field, can relate and apply their research
Despite the continuous struggle with contamination and pollution in our everyday environments, the research and development of nano-based technologies continue to expand and discover the ultimate purification solution. This book reflects the endeavour of renowned experts in the ever-growing field by sharing and informing readers of the state-of-the-art techniques for environmental protection, taking into account the nonconventional ones, as well as the hazardous implications of certain methods.
