Main description

Extensively revised and featuring new material, this timely, advanced resource covers the impacts of nanomaterials on organisms and ecosystems and their applications within industry.

Cowritten by leaders of two of the most prominent research groups in the world considering the effects of nanomaterials on the environment, the second edition of Environmental Nanotechnology addresses the cutting-edge advances in this area. There is now much more known about the impacts of nanomaterials on organisms and ecosystems. Methods have been developed where there were few accepted procedures in the past. Thinking has evolved to consider the life cycle effects of nanomaterial production, and tools for risk forecasting are now under development. There has also been some experience among academics in using this book as the basis for new courses on Environmental Nanotechnology.

Three new chapters cover the life cycle of nanomaterial fabrication and use and estimating nanomaterial exposure in the environment. A systematic discussion of the effects of nanomaterials on organisms and ecosystems is included, where the previous edition was largely limited to speculation.

  • Features 75% new material
  • New chapter on the life cycle aspects of nanomaterial fabrication and use
  • Two new chapters on estimating nanomaterial exposure in the environment: implications that explore nanotoxicology; exposure estimation
  • Contains end-of-chapter problems and questions

Author Information


Mark R. Wiesner, Ph.D., is a professor of Environmental Engineering and former director of the Environmental & Energy Systems Institute (EESI). Dr. Wiesner's research pioneered the applications of nanomaterials to membrane science and water treatment and an examination of the possible risks posed by these materials to human health and the environment. Jean-Yves Bottero, Ph.D., is the head of France's Geoscience and Environmental Laboratory. He specializes in the physical chemistry of organic, inorganic, and heterogeneous contaminants; the physicochemical properties of surfaces; mechanisms of coagulation and flocculation; and water and wastewater treatment.
