Description

Nanoscale Materials for Water Purification brings together sustainable solutions using novel nanomaterials to alleviate the physical effects of water scarcity. This book covers a wide range of nanomaterials, including noble metal nanoparticles, magnetic nanoparticles, dendrimers, bioactive nanoparticles, polysaccharide-based nanoparticles, nanocatalysts and redox nanoparticles for water purification. Significant properties and characterization methods of nanomaterials, such as surface morphology, mechanical properties, and adsorption capacities are also investigated. This book is an important research reference for materials scientists and environmental engineers who want to learn more about nanomaterials and their use in more effective water purification systems.

Key Features

  • Explains how the unique properties of a range of nanomaterials makes them important water purification agents
  • Shows how the use of nanotechnology can help create cheaper, more reliable, less energy-intensive, more environmentally friendly water purification techniques
  • Includes case studies to show how nanotechnology has successfully been integrated into water purification system design

Readership

Materials scientists and environmental scientists wanting to learn more about how nanotechnology can improve water purification techniques and systems
