Due to rapid urbanization and development, water get polluted by the noxious waste released from industrial, sewage and agricultural runoffs. Sustainable Materials for Sensing and Remediation of Noxious Pollutants covers two most widely used aspects in the field of wastewater i.e. sensing and rapid remediation with a possible solution of successful technology commercialization. Chapters include information on low cost materials as sensing and remediating agents for the rapid removal of noxious impurities from wastewater. It includes chapters on the sensing of noxious metals, low cost adsorbents for the removal of noxious impurities i.e. inorganic (metal ions) and organic (dyes). Additional chapters include future/upcoming scopes of work and one chapter on the general introduction of the field. The book content will be technical and focused for the audience like graduate students, academicians, researchers and industrial professionals. Sustainable Materials for Sensing and Remediation of Noxious Pollutants is single reference source for environmental scientists and engineers interested in low cost sensing and remediation strategies.

Key Features

  • Assists readers in developing new strategies to address the issues related to sensing and remediation activities
  • Includes low cost materials for sensor and adsorbent development allowing professionals to make decisions based on economic considerations
  • Provides alternatives for the development of socioeconomically sustainable products for sensing and remediation application


Graduate students and researchers in environmental remediation, Environmental and biochemical engineers

About the Editors

Inderjeet Tyagi

Dr. Inderjeet Tyagi is currently working as Scientist (Water Chemistry) at Zoological Survey of India, Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change, India. Prior to joining the 100 year old institute Dr. Tyagi completed his Ph. D (Chemistry) IIT Roorkee. He primarily works in the field of wastewater treatment and microbial diversity assessment (Metasystematics) related to the heavily polluted areas using high throughput sequencing NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) technology. The work deals with the correlation of microbial diversity with that of water quality and noxious pollutants (Environmental preferences). He has published more than ~ 90 research papers in journal of International repute with cumulative impact factor ~ 400; Google Scholar Citation ~6600 (May, 2021) and h-index 46. Moreover, he is currently in the reviewer panel of more than 40 SCI journals of publishers such as Elsevier, Springer, Nature, American Chemical Society (ACS), Royal Society (RSc) etc.

Joanna Goscianska

Prof. Dr. Joanna Goscianska is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Chemistry of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (AMU). She obtained a Master’s degree in 2005, a doctoral degree in 2009, and habilitation in 2019, in the field of chemistry. During her PhD studies, she participated in three research internships at Laboratoire Catalyse & Spectrochimie in Caen (France) and later at the University of Alicante (Spain). She received a number of prestigious awards, including MAXIMA CUM LAUDE (2005), the scholarship of the city of Poznań for young researchers (2010), scholarship for outstanding young scientists awarded by the Minister of Science and Higher Education (2016-2019), team awards of the Rector of AMU for achievements in scientific (2014-2018), didactic (2014) and organizational work (2014). In 2018, she became a laureate of the habilitation fellowship “L’ORÉAL-UNESCO FOR WOMEN IN SCIENCE”. Her principal interest is focused on synthesis, modification, characterization of porous materials (e.g., metal oxides, ordered mesoporous silica and carbons, metal-organic frameworks) and their application in adsorption processes, catalysis, and drug delivery systems. She is co-author of 73 papers in journals from the Journal Citation Reports database, 1 book, 9 book chapters, 22 post-conference proceedings, and 170 presentations at international and national conferences.
