Green Chemistry and Water Remediation: Research and Applications explores how integrating the principles of green chemistry into remediation research and practice can have a great impact from multiple directions. This volume reviews both common sources of chemical pollution and how using green chemistry as the basis for new or improved remediation techniques can ensure that remediation itself is conducted in a sustainable way. By outlining the main types of chemical pollutants in water and sustainable ways to address them, the authors hope to help chemists identify key areas and encourage them to integrate green chemistry into the design of new processes and products.

In addition, the books highlights and encourages the use of the growing range of green remediation approaches available to experts, helping researchers, planners and managers make informed decisions in their selection of remediation techniques.

Key Features

  • Puts the naturally-aligned fields of green chemistry and environmental remediation in context, providing key background to both
  • Highlights the use of both established and cutting-edge techniques for sustainable water remediation, including nanotechnology, biofiltration and phytoremediation
  • Explores the potential impact sustainability goals in chemical waste production and water remediation


Chemists and chemical engineers working in green chemistry, sustainability, waste management and environmental risk assessment, Environmental chemists and scientists, Aquatic scientists, Researchers in bioremediation across both academia and industry, Environmental toxicologists, Chemical and environmental policy makers and regulators

About the Editor

Sanjay K. Sharma

After receiving his PhD in Synthetic Organophosphorus Chemistry and Computational Chemistry from the University of Rajasthan, Jaipur, India, Professor Sharma went on to join the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) as Professor and Head of the Department of Chemistry & Environmental Engineering. He then took up a position at Jaipur Engineering College and Research Center (JECRC) as Head of the Chemistry Department, where he established and now leads the Green Chemistry Research Laboratory. He has more than 18 years of teaching experience at UG and PG level. Professor Sharma’s interests are focussed on Green Chemistry and water-related research, and he has published 18 books and over 60 research papers with the top global publishers. He is a series editor, journal editor-in-chief, and sits of the editorial boards of multiple key journals in the field, as well as being a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) and a member of multiple global societies including the American Chemical Society (USA) and International Society for Environmental Information Sciences (ISEIS, Canada).
