Nanotechnology Applications for Clean Water

   

Introduction

The U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) defines “nanoscience” as “research to discover new behaviors and properties of materials with dimensions at the nanoscale, which ranges roughly from 1 to 100 nanometers (nm).” A key objective of nanotechnology is to develop materials, devices, and systems with fundamentally different properties by exploiting the unique properties of molecular and supramolecular systems at the nanoscale. In recent years, research in this field has grown exponentially as scientists and engineers continue to develop nanomaterials with unique and enhanced ...
