Despite the fact that nanotechnology has been present for a few decades, there is a big gap between what nanotechnology is perceived and what nanotechnology can truly offer in all sectors of water. The question to be answered is what more can we expect from nanotechnology in water field?

The rational nano-design is based on scientifically clear problem definitions, necessitates interdisciplinary approaches, involves ‘think-outside-the-box’, is not bounded by the available nanomaterials, and represents the future growth point of environmental nanotechnology. It thus has great potential of creating nextgeneration and ground-breaking solutions to the water challenges of our times. Unfortunately, the concept of rational nano-design is largely new to the educated public and even scientists and engineers in water fields. Therefore, it is the purpose of this book to promote the concept of rational nano-design, to demonstrate its creativity and excitement, and to illustrate its remarkable potential to change the face of the research in water industry in the future.

This book presents a series of carefully selected chapters, which represent drastically different, unconventional, and eye-opening approaches to conventional problems and each of the book contributors is world-renowned expert in the burgeoning field of rational nano-design for applications.

Rational Design of Next-generation Nanomaterials and Nanodevices for Water Applications is intended for undergraduates, graduates, scientists and professionals in the fields of environmental science and engineering, material science, chemistry, and chemistry engineering. It provides coherent and good materials for teaching, research, and professional reference.
