The groundbreaking text on the impact of nanomaterials on the environment - completely updated to reflect the latest breakthroughs and developments Co-written by a team of leading experts from around the world, Environmental Nanotechnology provides a thorough look at nanomaterial technologies, their use in engineering applications, and their effect on the environment. The Second Edition expertly addresses the rapid and extensive developments that have taken place in this area over the past decade. Since the release of the first edition, much more has been learned about the impact of nanomaterials on organisms and ecosystems. Methods have been developed where there were few accepted procedures in the past. Thinking has evolved to consider the life cycle effects of nanomaterial production, and tools for risk forecasting are now under development. The Second Edition of Environmental Nanotechnology has been extensively updated and revised to capture these cutting-edge advances in all-new chapters that include Ecotoxicology Principles for Manufactured Nanomaterials, Nanomaterials in Ecosystems, Risk Forecasting and Life-Cycle Considerations, and Nanotechnology Governance for Sustainable Science and Policy. Sections Include: * Overview (Nanotechnology and the Environment) * Principles and Methods * Environmental Applications of Nanomaterials * Environmental Implications Environmental Nanotechnology will prove invaluable in helping to address the challenges associated with meeting society's needs for energy and materials in an environmentally responsible fashion.

About Author

Mark R. Wiesner, professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Duke University, has been a pioneer in the applications of nanomaterials to membrane science and water treatment and in examining possible risks posed by these materials to human health and the environment. He serves as Director of the National Science Foundation/USEPA funded Center for the Environment Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT). Jean-Yves Bottero leads the International Consortium for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (iCEINT) and an associated French-sponsored eight-year effort on the topic, SERENADE. He is head of France's Geoscience and Environmental Laboratory and specializes in the physical chemistry of organic, inorganic, and heterogeneous contaminants; the physicochemical properties of surfaces; mechanisms of coagulation and flocculation; and water and wastewater treatment.
