Nanomaterials for (Environment) Water Purification

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

The book “Nano Materials Induced Removal of Textile Dyes from Waste Water“ discusses the environmental issue of the nanomaterial. As the topic is extreme vast only a particular part of the environmental issue i.e. water pollution has been given a focus. The topic has been further concentrated to the removal of various dyes from water by specific nano-system.

Chapter 1 has been discussed the basic of Nano system, its synthesis approach, advantages, disadvantages, few application its commercial benefits etc.

Chapter 2 is mainly associated with the basic science behind the reason that nanomaterial behaves completely different from its bulk form.    

Chapter 3 discusses some of the basic characterization technique of nanomaterial. These include few basic techniques like STM, AFM, SEM, TEM etc. and some dedicated direct or indirect techniques for particular application this book is dedicated to.

Chapter 4 describes the classifications of dyes as well as their characteristics. 

Chapter 5 is dedicated to the interaction of nanomaterials with different dyes in broad sense. The state of art has been discussed in this consequence. At the end of this chapter the basic techniques of removal of dyes with nanomaterial will be mentioned. Emphasis will be put on mainly photo-catalysis and adsorption.  

Chapter 6 deals with the detail of photo catalysis and the mechanism how it interacts with dyes to remove it. 

Chapter 7 follows the previous one with photo-catalysis being replaced by adsorption. Different adsorption model as well reaction kinetics has been elaborated.

Chapter 8 discusses few particular nano-system that are the most popular from the point of view of this particular application. The nanosystem may be carbon based, oxide based, polymer based or nitride based system.  

This book is properly designed to solve basic queries of common academicians and technologist about fundamental nanoscience and nanomaterial induced removal of textile dyes. Its basic concepts, chronological development and applications has been thoroughly discussed with appropriate examples and comparisons. We strongly believe that this effort shall be very important and useful for the budding engineers and scientist who are interested in nanoscience. 

The efforts have been given so that the style of the writing can be kept simple and easily understanding and the essence of the subject can be fed even to a school student. Also we have tried to keep the volume of the book reasonable so that the journey into this subject from the introduction to the advanced application can be finished within a couple of hours say within certain four hour’s air journey from Kolkata to Mumbai.

The main targeted audience will be PG students and the research scholars in the field of physics, chemistry and materials Science

About the Authors:

Diptonil Banerjee is currently working as an associate professor in the department of physics, faculty of engineering, Teerthanker Mahaveer University from 2020. Dr. Banerjee, completed both his graduation and Masters in Physics from University of Calcutta in the year 2005 and 2007, respectively. He did his PhD from Jadavpur University on Materials Science and Nanotechnology in the year of 2012. Presently, Dr. Banerjee is working mainly on carbon based nanotechnology and related applications. He has also started working on some oxide based nanostructures as well. He is entrusted by the Department of Science and Technology (Gov't of India) with few projects of considerable budget. 

Besides, he is an editorial board member and a reviewer of good numbers of quality journals. Currently, he is having an h index 21 and i10 index 41 with cumulative citation over 1270.

Amit Kumar Sharma did his graduation (BSc) in 2000 and post-graduation (MSc) in Electronics & Computational Physics in 2002 from Dr. B.R.A. Univ. (Agra University), Agra. He did Ph.D. in Applied Science (Physics) from Gautam Buddh University (Formerly U.P. Technical University), Lucknow in 2012. He is currently working as Assoc. Prof. in the Dept. of Physics, Faculty of Engineering (TMU), Moradabad since 2019. Earlier, he worked as CSIR-postdoctoral fellow (Post-Doc) in Biophysics Division, Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Department of Atomic Energy, Kolkata. His areas of research are Molecular Physics, Biophysics, Toxin and flavonoids, Sensors and Computational Physics. He has published 15 research papers in the International Journal of repute and more than 21 papers in proceedings of conferences

Nirmalya Sankar Das is presently working as assistant professor in the Department of Physics in Techno International - Batanagar (formerly known as Techno India – Batanagar), Kolkata, India. He is also the teacher –in- charge of the department. He pursued his graduation with physics honors as well as masters from Jadavpur University, Kolkata. After completing his Masters, he did his PhD from the same University in the field of Nanoscience and Technology under the supervision of Prof. Kalyan Kumar Chattopadhyay.

During his PhD, he was involved in making different oxide and sulphide thin films like pure and doped NiO, ZnO, CdS films synthesized by RF magnetron sputtering technique. Also he has extensively studied the optical and electrical properties of all those thin films. Presently his research interest focuses on the optical, electrical and electronic properties of different semiconductor oxide, sulphide and nitride nanostructures. Apart from academics Dr. Das has also engaged in different administrative activities as well. Apart from those academic aspects, he is a very good artist. His creations, both in the scientific and creative art section, have always been highly appreciated.
