About the book
Nanotechnology is an enabling technology, which has witnessed rapid growth with a high potential impact on virtually all fields of human activity (environmental, industrial, health-related, biomedical, economy, politics, etc), with respect to sustainability and compatibility. The nanotechnology and the development of new tools to analyze and manipulate matter at the molecular level create a dimension of change in the revolutionary advance in scientific understanding and its application across many new technologies.
This book represents a current and up to date research overview on those nanotechnology-based approaches that promise faster, easier and cheaper processes in environmental monitoring and remediation for social well-being. Moreover, it presents detailed studies and up-to-date information on economics, toxicity, and regulations related to nanotechnology. This book also comprises a look on the role of nanotechnology for a green and sustainable future, nano-catalysis for green technology and nanotechnology-based devices in environmental science, focusing on nanomaterials and polymer nanocomposites.
