About this book

Introduction

This brief critically reviews the structure and applications of polysaccharide based materials as a green and sustainable resource in water and water treatment operations. 
The authors present a fascinating insight into the application of this renewable resource in water and wastewater treatment operations approached from multiple perspectives: mechanistic insight into the coagulation efficiency of polysaccharides based coagulants; progress and prospects of polysaccharide composites as adsorbent for water and wastewater treatment; structural modifications of polysaccharides for enhanced performance as adsorbents; tuning polysaccharides framework for optimal coagulation efficiency; and tapping into microbial polysaccharides for water and wastewater purifications.
This brief is aimed at professionals active in the science and engineering aspects of water and wastewater treatment operations.
