This would also ensure minimising potential environmental exposure. The increase in use of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) ends up in waste streams, and consequently to the environment and drinking water resources. It is mainly applicable to the removal of three major contaminants like pesticides, heavy metals and microorganisms. Nanoparticles possess useful characteristics such as a direct bandgap, a high optical absorption coefficient, a layered structure, tunable band edges for optimized catalysis, low cost, and low toxicity.

Posted: Feb 22, 2008: Nanotechnology and water treatment (Nanowerk Spotlight) Only 30% of all freshwater on the planet is not locked up in ice caps or glaciers (not for much longer, though).Of that, some 20% is in areas too remote for humans to access and of the remaining 80% about three-quarters comes at the wrong time and place - in monsoons and floods - and is not always captured for use … Water Treatment By Nanoparticles Treating water with the help of nanoparticles is a huge topic in nanotechnology. Achieving Water Purification Through the Use of Magnetic Nanoparticles. Current applications of iron oxide NMs in contaminated water treatment can be divided into two groups: (a) technologies which use iron oxide NMs as a kind of nanosorbent or immobilization carrier for removal efficiency enhancement (referred to here as adsorptive/immobilization technologies), and (b) those which use iron oxide NMs as photocatalysts to break down or to convert contaminants into a … In particular, the use of magnetic nanoparticles. Due to the exceptional characteristics which resulted from nanoscale size, such as improved catalysis and adsorption properties as well as high reactivity, nanomaterials have been the subject of active research and development worldwide in recent years. %PDF-1.7 %���� These nanomaterials will eventually go into the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), therefore, resulting into a pressing need for information on their aggregation behavior and kinetics in the wastewater aqueous matrix. Magnetic nanoparticles are used as the core material in a coreeshell nanoparticle structure where the shell provides the desired function while the magnetic core realizes magnetic separation. used for treatment of water so far some of which are very successful.
