Application of Nanotechnology in Water Research describes a broad area of nanotechnology and water research where membrane processes nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, and nanoreactive membranes are considered key components of advanced water purification and desalination technologies that remove, reduce, or neutralize water contaminants that threaten human health and/or ecosystem productivity and integrity
In water research, nanotechnology is applied to develop more cost-effective and high-performance water treatment systems, as well as to provide instant and continuous ways to monitor water quality
Nanotechnology applications for waste water research have significant impact in maintaining the long-term quality, availability, and viability of water
Regardless of the origin, such as municipal or industrial waste water, its remediation utilizing nanotechnology can not only be recycled and desalinized, but it can simultaneously detect biological and chemical contamination
The book also covers water-borne infectious diseases as well as water-borne pathogens, microbes, and toxicity approach.
This volume presents an array of cutting-edge nanotechnology research in water applications including treatment, remediation, sensing, and pollution prevention
Various nanoparticles and nanomaterials that could be used in water remediation zeolites, carbon nanotubes, self-assembled monolayer on mesoporous supports, biopolymers, single-enzyme nanoparticles, zero-valent iron nanoparticles, bimetallic iron nanoparticles, and nanoscale semiconductor photocatalysts are discussed
