Description

Nanomaterials Applications for Environmental Matrices: Water, Soil and Air takes a highly interdisciplinary approach in evaluating the use of a range of nanomaterials for various environmental applications, focusing, in particular, on their use in soil remediation, in improving water cleanliness, and in improving air quality. The book will not only help both materials scientists and environmental scientists understand the role played by nanomaterials in achieving these goals, but also give them practical ways they can be used to this end.

Key Features

  • Brings together the various applications and experimental aspects of nanoscience in the fields of chemistry, biology, environmental science and physics
  • Maps the relationship between synthesis, properties and environmental interactions of nanomaterials, enabling greater understanding
  • Describes new application opportunities for using nanomaterials in pollution trace detection and environmental improvement

Readership

Graduate students, research scientists and academics working in related fields in chemistry, biology, environmental science, physics, and engineering
