Nanotechnology in water treatment

Nanotechnology refers to a broad range of tools, techniques and applications that simply involve particles on the relative size scale of a few to hundreds of nanometers in diameter. Particles of this size have some different physiochemical and surface properties that lend themselves to novel uses. Indeed, defends of nanotechnology suggest that this area of research could contribute to solutions for some of the major problems we face on the global scale such as assuring a supply of safe drinking water for a growing population, as well as transmiting issues in medicine, energy, and agriculture.
