Abstract

Applications of nanomaterials in environmental protection have created conditions to improve environment and control pollution, which will bring breakthrough progress to environmental science and engineering. Using nanomaterials to solve environmental issues will become an inexorable trend in the future. Applications of nanomaterials in green chemistry, photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants, remediation of polluted soils or water, pollutant sensing and detection, and so on, have been introduced. Besides, the potential risks of nanomaterials were also briefly discussed.
