In the last few decades, nanotechnology has occupied significant domain in the scientific realm
because of its multidisciplinary nature. The enhanced properties and suitability of nanoparticles
makes them to use in various applications in different field. The use of nanoparticles in environmental
remediation is particularly suitable due to its high surface area to volume ratio that results in high
reactivity. This chapter mainly describes the inorganic, carbon and polymer based nanomaterials for
use in treating various contaminants of the environment.
