Synopsis

With its emphasis on the application of nanotechnology to improve water treatment processes, this ready reference and handbook addresses the real needs of scientists and others working in the industry. It thus covers materials ranging from ceramic membranes, to functional nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, and biological materials, as well as theoretical aspects.
Each chapter is written by leading international experts in the field, examining in detail desalination, adsorption, filtration, the destruction and conversion of pollutants, as well as the monitoring of water quality, while discussing the most fundamental concepts, exciting breakthroughs and future developments along the way.
