With its emphasis on the application of nanotechnology to improve water treatment processes, this ready reference and handbook addresses the real needs of scientists and others working in the industry. It thus covers materials ranging from ceramic membranes, to functional nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, and biological materials, as well as theoretical aspects. Each chapter is written by leading international experts in the field, examining in detail desalination, adsorption, filtration, the destruction and conversion of pollutants, as well as the monitoring of water quality, while discussing the most fundamental concepts, exciting breakthroughs and future developments along the way.

Author Biography

Prof Mikel Duke has worked in membrane research for almost 10 years and has 36 peer-review publications in this field. He received his BE and PhD degree from the University of Queensland in environmental and chemical engineering and has worked at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Functional Nanomaterials and Arizona State University since then. His focus is on development of ceramic membranes that operate at the molecular level by optimizing functional material parameters. He is the recipient of a prestigious Endeavour Executive Award and the founding chair of the Membrane Society of Australasia.

Professor Dongyuan Zhao is Cheung Kong Professor of the China Education Ministry, Vice Director of the Advanced Materials Laboratory at Fudan University and Visiting Professor at Monash University (Australia). He is an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. With over 350 peer-reviewed papers earning >20000 citations he is the 65th Most-Cited Scientist in Chemistry (according to ISI). His research interests are in the synthesis of porous materials and their application in catalysis, separation, photonics, sorption, environmental decontamination, sensors, etc.

Prof. Raphael Semiat is the Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Chair in Science, Engineering and Management of Water Resources at Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. He has wide industrial experience in research and development of chemical processes. His current interests and activities are centered on water technologies, chemical-environmental processes and use of nano crystals for removal of organic matter from water. He has published more than 100 papers in scientific journals.
