Environmental Chemistry for a Sustainable World

Food security and pollution are global issues that will get bigger due to the

increasing population, industrialisation and climate change. One-third of food

produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally, which amounts to

about 1.3 billion tons per year, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization.

There is, therefore, a need for advanced technology to save food and clean the

environment. This book reviews advanced nanotechnology in food, health, water

and agriculture. In food, nano biosensors display an unprecedented efficiency for the

detection of allergens, genetically modified organisms and pathogens, as explained

in Chaps. 1, 2 and 3 (Fig. 1). In agriculture, nano fertilisers improve plant nutrition

by releasing nutrients slowly and steadily (Chap. 4). Chapter 5 reviews the toxicological

impact of carbon nanomaterials on plants, whereas Chap. 10 presents a

modelling method to predict the toxicity of pollutants. Classical and advanced

methods for water desalinisation are then described in Chap. 6. Bioremediation

and nano-remediation of waters and metals are reviewed in Chaps. 7, 8 and 9.
