Nanomaterials for the Removal of Volatile Organic Compounds from Aqueous Solutions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are extensively used in a large number of industrial applications. This extensive use leads to the release of VOCs into the environment. The risk and health effects of VOCs have been widely reported. Some VOCs can cause developmental damage, damage to body organs, and cancer. Methods exist for the removal of VOCs from aqueous solutions; however, there is still a need for the development of more efficient methods to achieve this task. Nanomaterials holds promise for efficient removal of VOCs from aqueous solution as outlined in this chapter. The challenges facing the use of nanomaterials for VOCs remediation are also discussed.
