Nanomaterials for Catalytic Remediation of Environmental Contaminants
The growth of population and waste causes the contamination of a significant portion of freshwater. The nature of these pollutants varies; in fact, both organic and inorganic pollutants, such as pharmaceutical products, heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and many others, can be found in water and wastewater. Consequently, this causes damage to all living organisms by originating many chronic or acute diseases. Nanotechnology can aid the removal of these compounds in many ways. For example, nanocatalysts can convert more efficiently toxic pollutants into their less toxic counterparts due to their high surface area to volume ratio, as well as by mimicking homogeneous catalysis by forming a colloidal suspension. This Special Issue aims to collect recent progress in using heterogeneous nanocatalysis for water remediation, including (but not limited to) advanced reduction and oxidation processes. Articles on the degradation of persistent organic pollutants, emerging contaminants, and other organic and inorganic pollutants by nanocatalysts are also welcomed. Research and review papers, short communications, perspectives, and opinions covering the topics mentioned above are invited for submission.
