Nanoscale materials in water purification

Contributor(s): Thomas, Sabu [ed.] | Pasquini, Daniel [ed.] | Leu, Shao-Yuan [ed.] | Gopakumar, Deepu A. [ed.].
Series: (Macro & nano technologies series). Publisher: Amsterdam Elsevier 2019Description: xxvii, 862p.ISBN: 9780128139264.Subject(s): Nanostructured materials | Water -- Purification | NanotechnologyDDC classification: 628.162 | N157 Summary: Novel nanoscale materials are now an essential part of meeting the current and future needs for clean water, and are at the heart of the development of novel technologies to desalinate water. The unique properties of nanomaterials and their convergence with current treatment technologies present great opportunities to revolutionize water and wastewater treatment. 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, polysaccharidebased 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 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
