Water Purification, a volume in theNanotechnology in the Food Industryseries, provides an in-depth review of the current technologies and emerging application of nanotechnology in drinking water purification, also presenting an overview of the common drinking water contaminants, such as heavy metals, organics, microorganisms, pharmaceuticals, and their occurrences in drinking water sources.

As the global water crisis has motivated the industry to look for alternative water supplies, nanotechnology presents significant potential for utilizing previously unacceptable water sources. This books explores the practical methodologies for transforming water using nanotechnologies, and is a comprehensive reference to a wide audience of food science research professionals, professors, and students who are doing research in this field.

  • Includes the most up-to-date information on nanotechnology applications and research methods for water purification and treatment
  • Presents applications of nanotechnology and engineered nanomaterials in drinking water purification to improve efficiency and reduce cost
  • Provides water purification research methods that are important to water quality, including precipitation, adsorption, membrane separation, and ion exchange
  • Covers the potential risks of nanotechnology, such as the toxicological effects of engineered nanomaterials in water and how to minimize risks based on research studies
