Nanomaterials for Wastewater Remediation by Ravi Kumar Gautam, Mahesh Chandra Chattopadhyaya

By Ravi Kumar Gautam, Mahesh Chandra Chattopadhyaya

Nanomaterials for Wastewater Remediation introduces strategies for nanoparticle formation and their merits in environmental cleanup, in addition to their fresh advances and functions in wastewater remedy. The booklet follows a sequential procedure for the therapy of wastewater, offering cutting-edge ideas for the characterization and size of nanomaterials.

Nanoparticles characterize a promising new expertise for wastewater remediation, not just as a result of their excessive therapy potency, but in addition for his or her expense effectiveness, as they've got the flexibleness for in situ and ex situ functions. New equipment for constructing nanomaterials with much less environmental hazard are defined. Nanomaterials akin to magnetic nanoparticles and graphene-based nanocomposites are mentioned intimately. additionally comprises in-depth analyses of the ecotoxicological affects of nanomaterials and the most recent findings at the delivery and destiny of nanomaterials within the environment.

  • Covers tools for the characterization of nanomaterials utilizing complicated instrumental techniques
  • Includes cutting edge equipment for constructing new nanomaterials whereas lessening their environmental risk
  • Provides the most recent equipment for making a choice on the shipping and destiny of nanomaterials within the environment
  • Discusses intimately nanomaterials comparable to magnetic nanoparticles and graphene-based nanocomposites
