    Nanotechnology is emerging in a wide variety of applications, yet unfortunately very little is known about the environmental implications of engineered nanomaterials, of possible ways to handle engineered nano-materials as environmental pollutants, or of how nanomaterials behave in the environment when used for : Eva Oberdörster.   Nanotechnology Applications in Environmental Engineering contains innovative research on nanomaterials and their impact on the environment. It also explores the current and potential future applications of nanodevices in environmental science and engineering, showcasing how nanomaterials can be tailored to address some of the environmental.

    Nanotechnology and the Environment Applications and Implications Editor(s): Barbara Karn 1, Tina Masciangioli 2, Wei-xian Zhang 3, Vicki Colvin 4, Paul Alivisatos 5. This book especially deals with the nanotechnology for controlling plant pathogens, food packaging and preservation, agricultural productivity, waste water treatment and bioenergy production. Hence, this book can be adopted and used by many researchers and academicians in the fields of food, agriculture, environment and nanotechnology for.

    Get this from a library! Nanotechnology and the environment. [Kathleen Sellers;] -- Offers a fundamental understanding of the properties of nanoscale materials, their fate and transport in the environment and in wastewater, and the implications for worker safety and the environment. The main objective of this book is to give in-depth understanding of the physical electronics and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes. In other words, this book is intended to provide a profound knowledge of these electrical and mechanical characteristics allowing the reader to further appreciate the potential and applications of carbon nanotubes.
