Nanotechnology Applications for Clean Water Book Review:

The World Health Organization in 2004 estimated approximately 1.1 billion people did not have access to clean water and that 35% of Third World residents died from water-borne illnesses. While the situation is grim, recent advances strongly indicate that many of the current water quality problems can be addresses – and potentially resolved – using nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is already having a dramatic impact on research in water quality and Nanotechnology Applications for Clean Water highlights both the challenges and the opportunities for nanotechnology to positively influence this area of environmental protection. Here you will find detailed information on breakthroughs, cutting edge technologies, current research, and future trends that may affect acceptance of widespread applications. The first four parts of the book cover specific topics including using nanotechnology for clean drinking water in both large scale water treatment plants and in point-of-use systems. For instance, recent advances show that many of the current problems involving water quality can be addressed using nanosorbents, nanocatalysts, bioactive nanoparticles, nanostructured catalytic membranes, and nanoparticle enhanced filtration. The book also discusses existing technologies and future potential for groundwater remediation, pollution prevention, and sensors. The final part discusses the inherent societal implications that may affect acceptance of widespread applications. Over 80 leading experts from around the world share their wealth of knowledge in this truly unique reference. Institutions such as Center for the Purification of Water and Systems (Univ. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign); UCLA Water Technology Center; Carnegie Mellon University, University of Kentucky; The University of Western Ontario; Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; National Institute for Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (Japan), Munasinghe Institute for Development (Sri Lanka) and the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars are just a few of the knowledge centers represented in this book. Water quality is a serious, global issue in which government bodies and scientific communities face many challenges in ensuring clean water is available to everyone. Nanotechnology is already showing dramatic results, and this book is an attempt to share current technologies and future possibilities in reaching this goal. From the Foreword: "Researchers and practitioners may find in this volume, key challenges regarding clean water resources.

Photochemical Charge Transfer in Nanostructured Photocatalysts for Solar Hydrogen Production Book Review:

Solar energy is a promising sustainable energy source to reduce greenhouse gas emission from combustion of fossil fuels and slow down the global climate change. Solar hydrogen generation via photocatalytic water splitting is potentially the most cost-effective way to produce solar fuels, so the development of efficient photocatalysts is one of the most important targets for scientific research. However, the application of inorganic materials for solar water splitting is currently limited by our understanding of photochemical charge transfer on the nanoscale, where space charge layers are less effective for carrier separation. Therefore, this dissertation focuses on the preparation of well-defined photocatalysts for the water splitting reaction and on the characterization of photochemical charge transfer on their interfaces. This will be accomplished through the application of surface photovoltage and photoelectrochemical measurements, and with photocatalytic reactivity tests. Results from this study can guide the design of inorganic photocatalysts with improved efficiency for solar energy conversion into fuel. Chapter 2 describes surface photovoltage spectroscopy studies to measure the internal photovoltages in a hydrogen evolution photocatalyst, single crystalline platinum/ruthenium-modified Rh-doped SrTiO3 nanocrystals. Voltages of -0.88 V and -1.13 V are found between the light absorber and the Ru and Pt cocatalysts, respectively, and a voltage of -1.48 V for a Rh-doped SrTiO3 film on an Au substrate. The voltages shows that the Pt and Ru cocatalysts not only improve the redox kinetics but also aid charge separation in the absorber. The voltages with redox agents correlate well with the photocatalytic performance of the catalyst and are influenced by the built-in potentials of the donor-acceptor configurations, the physical separation of donors and acceptors, and the reversibility of the redox reaction. The photovoltage data also allow the identification of a photosynthetic system for hydrogen evolution (80 [mu]mol·g−11h−1) under visible light illumination (>400 nm) from 0.05 M aqueous K4[Fe(CN)6]. Chapter 3 shows that suspended p-Si nanowires obtained by etching of an Al-doped silicon wafer facilitate photochemical hydrogen evolution under visible light. The activity varies greatly between sacrificial donors and can be increased by attachment of MoS2 cocatalysts, which promote proton reduction and charge transfer at the silicon-MoS2 interface. Overall, the activity of suspended p-Si nanorods is limited by the stability of the material in neutral solutions. A basic or neutral environment with photo-excitation can lead to silicon corrosion. In 0.05 M ferrocyanide at pH 6.5, the hydrogen evolution rate for SiNW/MoS2 was as high as 106 [mu]mol (10mg)−1 h−1 accompanied by silicon corrosion. The rate without corrosion decreased to 0.64 [mu]mol (10mg)−1 h−1 at a lower pH of 4.7. With silicon corrosion, the rate also reached 117 [mu]mol (10mg)−1 h−1 in pH 6.5 0.05 M Na2SO3 solution and 678 [mu]mol (10mg)−1 h−1 in 0.1 M NaSH without pH control. Silicon corrosion was not found in formaldehyde and methanol solutions, but the rates of SiNW/MoS2 and SiNW were as low as 0.40 and 0.18 [mu]mol (10mg)−1 h−1 for methanol solution, and 0.71 and 0.27 [mu]mol (10mg)−1 h−1 for formaldehyde solution. The increased hydrogen evolution with silicon corrosion can be attributed to both electron donating of silicon and reduced charge transfer resistivity with the dissolution of surface oxide layer on silicon nanowires. These findings can improve the understanding of photochemistry of Si-MoS2 catalyst, and help avoiding silicon corrosion in photocatalysis.
