Natural Polymers-Based Green Adsorbents for Water Treatment focuses on the recent development of novel polymeric adsorbents that are green and eco-friendly, or biodegradable in nature. The book reviews the synthesis, properties, and adsorption applications of natural and green polymer-based adsorbents. The book discusses remediation technologies developed to remove environmental pollutants, the usage of natural, polymer-based, cost-effective, and green novel adsorbent materials for the removal of organic and inorganic contaminants, and the efficiency of functionalized polymers, nanosorbents, hydrogels, composites, and graft copolymers in the sorption of various pollutants from the environment and industrial effluents.
- Provides a comprehensive, step-by-step review of the processing and modification of biopolymers and their applications in environmental remediation
- Features chapters written by world-wide experts from academia
- Contains many illustrations, tables, figures, graphs, bibliographies, and extensive references
- Includes content especially tailored for early-career scientists to help them achieve their future research goals
