Nanomaterials for CO2 Capture Storage Conversion and Utilization Book Review:

The gradual increase of population and the consequential rise in the energy demands in recent years have led to the widespread use of fossil fuels. CO2 transformation by various processes is considered as a promising alternative technology. This book sets out the fundaments of how nanomaterials are being used for this purpose. Nanomaterials for CO2 Capture, Storage, Conversion and Utilization summarizes the research, development and innovations in the capture, storage, transformation and utilization of CO2 into useful products and raw chemicals for industry. This is achieved by using advanced processes such as CO2 reforming, bi-reforming and tri-reforming of hydrocarbons or biomass derivatives; homogeneous and heterogeneous hydrogenation; photochemical reduction; photoelectrochemical reduction; electrochemical reduction; biochemical reduction; supercritical CO2 technology; advanced catalyst synthesis for CO2 conversion; organic carbonates for polymers synthesis from CO2, and CO2 capture and sequestration. The systematic and updated reviews on the mentioned sectors, especially on the use of nanotechnology for the transformation of CO2 is scarce in the literature. Thus, the book addresses the recent knowledge gaps and potential solutions of the storage, utilization and transformation of CO2 as well as its promising applications. This is an important reference source for materials scientists, engineers and energy scientists who want to understand how nanotechnology is helping us to solve some of the world’s major energy problems. Shows how nanomaterials are being used to create more efficient CO2 capture, storage and conversation systems Outlines the major nanomaterials-based techniques to create such systems Assesses the major challenges in using nanomaterials for energy capture, storage and conversion

Bismuth Book Review:

Bismuth (Bi) is a post-transition metal element with the atomic number of 83, which belongs to the pnictogen group elements in Period 6 in the elemental periodic table. As a heavy metal, the hazard of Bi is unusually low in contrast to its neighbors Pb and Sb. This property, along with other typical characteristics like strong diamagnetism and low thermal conductivity, makes Bi attractive in industrial applications. There are more than 100 commercial bismuth products, from pharmaceutical to industrial catalysts. Based on the wide applications of Bi materials, this book goes further and mainly focuses on the potential uses of Bi-based materials, which consist of nine chapters.

Carbon Nanomaterial Based Adsorbents for Water Purification Book Review:

The deterioration of water quality and unavailability of drinkable water are pressing challenges worldwide. The removal of toxic organic and inorganic pollutants from water is vital for a clean environment, as a response to water scarcity. Adsorption-based water technologies are among the most widely used because of their high efficiency and low cost, without relying on a complex infrastructure. In recent years, carbon nanomaterials (CNMs), such as graphene and derivatives, carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers, nanoporous carbon, fullerenes, graphitic carbon nitride, and nanodiamonds have been extensively exploited as adsorbents due to their extraordinary surface properties, ease of modification, large surface area, controlled structural varieties, high chemical stability, porosity, low density, ease of regeneration, and reusability. This book provides a thorough overview of the state of the art in carbon nanomaterials as they are used for adsorption applications in water purifications, as well as addressing their toxicological challenges. This volume primarily explores the fundamentals of adsorption, its mechanical aspects, synthesis and properties of CNMs, and adsorption performances of CNMs and their nanocomposites with organic and inorganic materials. Structural engineering and activation processes produce materials with enhanced adsorptive properties and separation efficiencies. Furthermore, the formation of CNMs with 2D and 3D macro-and microstructures and high porosities is a potential approach to improve adsorption performances and extend CNM use at the industrial level. The book also addresses important issues regarding these adsorbents that potentially affect future research and industrial applications of carbon-based nanoadsorbents in water security. Presents advances in multifunctional 3D superstructures of carbon nanomaterials and their composites for adsorption applications Outlines the fundamentals on synthesis and characterization techniques of carbon-based nanostructures and their composites Assesses the major toxicological challenges in using nanostructured materials as adsorbents for water purification
