Description:

This book chapter discusses various catalysts for environmental remediation. Detailed information on catalysis using ferrate and ferrite oxidation, TiO2 photocatalysis, and new catalysts (i.e., graphene, perovskites and graphitic carbon nitride) is provided for the degradation of many pollutants, including endocrine disrupting chemicals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, halogenated compounds, and cyanotoxins. The reduction of toxic metals and inorganic anions by a catalytic reduction process is also discussed in detail. Many contaminants are decomposed effectively by the catalytic oxidation and reduction processes due to their high reactivity. Moreover, appropriate modifications of the materials can significantly improve their efficacy for environmental remediation, even though these materials possess extremely desirable properties in their pure forms.
