Summary:
Advanced Nanostructures for Environmental Health shows how advanced nanostructures are used to meet the most important challenges of our age. The book presents examples of how advanced nanostructures can detect and remove pollutants and other contaminant harmful to people’s health and provides examples of diagnosis tools based on advanced nanostructures. Treatment possibilities with the use of nanostructures, such as phototherapeutic applications, radiation based treatment methods, and drug delivery systems are also explored. Takes an interdisciplinary approach to the use of advanced nanostructures for applications, including both environmental science and biomedical perspectives Includes a range of case studies to show how nanomaterials are being used to solve real-life challenges Covered applications include the detection of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, (heavy) metals and metalloids, gas molecules, bacteria, viruses, and for water and air decontamination by advanced oxidation processes
