About this book

Pollution of waters by toxic metals is accelerating worldwide due to industrial and population growth, notably in countries having poor environmental laws, resulting in many diseases such as cancer. Classical remediation techniques are limited. This books reviews new, advanced or improved techniques for metal removal, such as hybrid treatments, nanotechnologies and unconventional adsorbents, e.g. metal-organic frameworks. Contaminants include rare earth elements, arsenic, lead, cadmium, chromium, copper and effluents from the electronic, textile, agricultural and pharmaceutical industries.

About the authors

Dr. Inamuddin, is an assistant professor in the Chemistry Department, King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and is also an assistant professor in the Department of Applied Chemistry, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India. He has extensive research experience in multidisciplinary fields of analytical chemistry, materials chemistry, electrochemistry, renewable energy and environmental science. He has published about 162 research articles in various international scientific journals, 18 book chapters, and 96 edited books with multiple well-known publishers. His current research interests include ion exchange materials, a sensor for heavy metal ions, biofuel cells, supercapacitors and bending actuators.

Dr. Mohd Imran Ahamed received his Ph.D degree on the topic "Synthesis and characterization of inorganic-organic composite heavy metals selective cation-exchangers and their analytical applications", from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India in 2019. He has published several research and review articles in the journals of international recognition. He has also edited various books which are published by Springer, CRC Press Taylor & Francis Asia Pacific and Materials Science Forum LLC, U.S.A. He has completed his B.Sc. (Hons) Chemistry from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India, and M.Sc. (Organic Chemistry) from Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Agra, India. His research work includes ion-exchange chromatography, wastewater treatment, and analysis, bending actuator and electrospinning.

Dr. Eric Lichtfouse is a biogeochemist at Aix Marseille University who has invented carbon-13 dating, a molecular-level method allowing to study the dynamics of organic compounds in temporal pools of complex environmental media. He is Chief Editor of the journal Environmental Chemistry Letters, and the book series Sustainable Agriculture Reviews and Environmental Chemistry for a Sustainable World. He is the author of the book Scientific Writing for Impact Factor Journals, which includes an innovative writing tool: the Micro-Article.
