OverviewExpand or collapse me

Despite the fact that nanotechnology has been present for a few decades, there is a big gap between what nanotechnology is perceived and what nanotechnology can truly offer in all sectors of water. The question to be answered is what more can we expect from nanotechnology in the water field? The rational nano-design starts with well-defined problem definitions, necessitates interdisciplinary approaches, involves 'think-outside-the-box', and represents the future growth point of environmental nanotechnology. However, it is still largely new to the educated public and even scientists and engineers in water fields. Therefore, it is the purpose of this book to promote the concept of rational nano-design and to demonstrate its creativity, innovation, and excitement.

This book presents a series of carefully selected rationally designed nano- materials/devices/surfaces, which represent drastically different, ground-breaking, and eye-opening approaches to conventional problems to embody the concept of nano-design and to illustrate its remarkable potential to change the face of the research in water industry in the future. Each of the book contributors is world-renowned expert in the burgeoning field of rational nano-design for applications.

Rational Design of Next-generation Nanomaterials and Nanodevices for Water Applications is intended for undergraduates, graduates, scientists and professionals in the fields of environmental science, material science, chemistry, and chemistry engineering. It provides coherent and good material for teaching, research, and professional reference.

 

Contents:

Introduction to rational nano-design for water applications; Design and Application of Magnetic-core Composite Nano/Micro Particles for Environmental Remediation; Rational Design of Functional Nanoporous Materials to Confine Water Pollutant in Controlled Nano-space; Hierarchical materials as a design concept for multifunctional membranes; Smart membrane materials for controllable oil-water separation; Design of the next-generation Forward Osmosis draw solution; Nanotechnology for Microbial Fuel Cells.
