Environmental pollution control and increasing our resource reutilization are major issues of our time. The incredible progress in nanotechnology over the past few years has been at the forefront of providing solutions to these big problems. This new book clarifies the fundamental principles for the application of nanomaterials in environmental pollution control and resource reutilization and also describes specific novel applications of environmental functional nanomaterials.
In addition to outlining the applications of nanomaterials for pollution control, the book highlights problems in such applications and offers some solutions to those problems. The book will inspire the next generation of nanomaterial designers and provides a state-of-the-art review and an exploration of emerging developments for those currently working in the area.
