Nanocomposites for Pollution Control

edited by Chaudhery Mustansar Hussain and Ajay Kumar Mishra

“This intriguing book presents an extensive and critical discussion on the modern methods of pollution treatment and control using nanocomposites, ranging from carbon-based ones and other inorganics to polymers, membranes, and bionanocomposites. It focuses on greener, environment-friendly, and sustainable techniques. The book is a valuable resource for environmental nanotechnologists, engineers, toxicologists, and researchers in companies and universities, as well as an excellent supporting material for students.”

Nanocomposites have outstanding mechanical properties and compatibility owing to their composite matrix and unique physical and chemical composition provided by large surface-area-to-volume ratios and high interfacial reactivity. The freedom to functionalize nanocomposites with various chemical groups increases their affinity toward target pollutants, which is highly desirable for the selective extraction of target analytes in complex environmental matrixes.

This book presents the recent progress in the field of nanocomposites and their properties, fabrication methods, and applications for pollution control and sensing. It discusses the advances in pollution control techniques made possible because of nanocomposites and focuses on environment-friendly and efficient approaches. The text also covers relevant economic, toxicological, and regulatory issues and research trends.
