Editorial Reviews

"This interdisciplinary book is indeed written for a broad audience of municipal water managers, engineers, researchers . describing the latest progress in the application of nanotechnology for water treatment and purification. . Nanotechnology for Water Treatment and Purification is not only an excellent scientific lecture but also a working instrument to be found on the laboratory bench of the scientists and on the bureau of responsible policymakers active in wastewater and drinking water treatment." (Ioan I. Ardelean, Bulletin of Micro and Nanoelectrotechnologies, Vol. 6 (1-2), 2015)
