Abstract:


Environmental pollutants are considered as the main concern for human life because it can affect health, especially via water sources. An enormous effort is needed to detect and monitor such contaminants from natural waters. Nanotechnology field offered combined benefits in regards to sensitive detection of environmental contaminants from water. This review describes the main types of water contaminants and recent approaches used for effective electrochemical detection of environmental pollutants with the aid of nanostructured materials.

Keywords:

Nanomaterials, detection, electrochemical sensor, water contaminants, heavy metals, organic pollutants.
