Emerging Catalysts for Wet Air Oxidation Process pp. 237-260 $0.00
Authors:  (Asuncion Quintanilla, Carmen M. Dominguez, Jose A. Casas, Juan J. Rodriguez, Chemical Engineering Section, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain)
Wastewater treatment has reached a maturity state but the growing industrialization along with the more stringent environmental regulations demand an increasing dynamism in short and medium term. Accordingly, the existing technologies should improve in both versatility and efficiency and, in this sense, catalysts can play a prominent role. In this chapter, the authors offer a critical review of the catalysts currently investigated for the industrial wastewater decontamination by wet air oxidation. A survey of catalysts industrially implemented and academically investigated is presented and their nature and competitive features in activity and durability remarked. The current trend in the exploration of nanomaterials in the wet air oxidation field is highlighted. Updated research on nanotechnology-based catalysts, specially, carbon nanostructures and gold nanoparticles, is summarized and thorough discussed. Our recent results involving nanoscale gold particles are also included.
