A comprehensive volume on photocatalytic functional materials for environmental remediation

As the requirement for removing large amounts of pollution and contamination in air, soil, and water grows, upcoming technologies in the field of environmental remediation are of increasing importance. The use of photocatalysis—a green technology with huge potential to resolve the issues related to environmental pollution—breaks down toxic organic compounds to mineralized products such as water and carbon dioxide. Because of their high performance, ease of fabrication, low manufacturing costs and long-term stability, photofunctional materials built from nanocomposite materials hold great potential for environmental remediation.

Photocatalytic Functional Materials for Environmental Remediation (PDF) explores the development of high-performance photo functional materials for the treatment of environmental pollutants.

This timely volume gathers and reviews a broad range of ideas from leading experts in fields of chemistry, physics, materials science, nanotechnology, and engineering. Precise, up-to-date chapters cover both the fundamentals and applications of photocatalytic functional materials. Semiconductor-metal nanocomposites, layered double hydroxides, metal-organic frameworks, polymer nanocomposites, and other photo functional materials are explored in applications such as carbon dioxide reduction and organic pollutant degradation. Giving interdisciplinary focus to green technology materials for the treatment of environmental pollutants, this important work:

  • Presents an interdisciplinary approach to environmental remediation
  • Offers an in-depth examination of highly topical green-technology solutions
  • Encompasses both fundamental concepts and applied technology in the field
  • Focuses on novel design and application of photocatalytic materials used for the removal of environmental contaminates and pollution
  • Provides comprehensive coverage of various photocatalytic materials for environmental remediation useful for researchers and developers

Photocatalytic Functional Materials for Environmental Remediation is an essential resource for engineers, researchers and graduate students in the multi-disciplinary areas of chemistry, physics, environmental science nanotechnology, materials science, and engineering related to photocatalytic environmental remediation.
