The 12 chapters comprehensively cover the development and advances on emerging carbon-based nanocomposites for wastewater applications and discuss the following topics:

  • The emerging carbon-based nanocomposites for remediation of heavy metals and organic pollutants from wastewater;
  • Functional green carbon nanocomposites for heavy-metal treatment in water;  
  • Green nanocomposites and their applications in environmentally-friendly carbon nanomaterials;  
  • Carbon-based nanocomposites as heterogeneous catalysts for organic reactions in environment-friendly solvents;
  • Carbonaceous nanomaterials for arsenic and chromium removal from waste water;
  • Biochar-based adsorbents for the removal of organic pollutants from aqueous systems;
  • Describes carbon nanomaterials based green nanocomposites;
  • The removal of trihalomethanes from water using nanofiltration membranes and
  • The transformation of wide bandgap semiconductors for visible-light photocatalytic degradation of organic dyes;
  • Nanocomposite materials as electrode materials in microbial fuel cells for the removal of water pollutants;
  • Plasmonic smart nanosensors for the determination of environmental pollutants.
