Environmental Chemistry for a Sustainable World

This new book series presents 23 chapters published into 2 volumes: Nanotechnology and Health Risk (Lichtfouse et al. 2012a), and Remediation of Air and Water Pollution (Lichtfouse et al. 2012b). Table 1 allows fast access to chapters by topics. All chapters have been reviewed and the rejection rate was 15%. The Nanotechnology section highlights carbon nanotubes for energy and detection; cyclodextrins for pollutant trapping; magnetic nanophotocatalysts for pollutant degradation; and poly-saccharides for metal oxide green synthesis. The Health Risk section describes new findings on the old DDT pesticide; geochronology of river pollutants; toxic effects of endocrine disruptors; and heavy metals in seafood. The Air and Water Pollution section presents the selective degradation of chiral pharmaceuticals; the alteration of housing walls by CO2 , SO2 and NOx; cleaning industrial waste gas and dyes wastewater; methods to extract and detect pollutants; and harmful chlorinated pollutants. The Remediation section highlights the electrochemical degradation of pharmaceuticals; methods to treat biogas CO2 , CH4, H2S and NH4 ; heavy metal sequestration on biomass and soil nodules; As phytoremediation; and photocata-lytic inactivation of water microbial pathogens.
