This book is dedicated to the innovative and emerging applications of intelligent materials in solving environmental issues. It provides an introduction to smart materials and their design for environmental applications and focuses on the recent development of their applications. Topics covered include: omniphobic slippery coatings; responsive and catalytic block copolymer membrane for water treatment; smart surfaces for controllable oil-water separation; and bio-inspired surfaces with patterned wettability for water harvesting.Peng Wang obtained his PhD from University of California, Santa Barbara in 2008 and is currently Chair of Environmental Science and Engineering program and Principal Investigator at the Environmental Nanotechnology Lab at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). He is also an affiliated member of the Water Desalination and Reuse Center at KAUST. His research focuses on interfacial materials with controllable surface wettability for oil/water separation, water collection, oil spill cleanup, and anti-fouling surfaces; development of multifunctional porous nanomaterials for highly efficient and selective removal of water contaminants; and photoelectrocatalysis and photocatalysis for water purification and water splitting.The development of smart materials for environmental applications is a highly innovative and promising new approach to meet the increasing demands from society on water resources and pollution remediation. Smart materials with surfaces that can reversibly respond to stimuli from internal and external environments by changing their properties show great promise as solutions for global environmental issues. Many of these functional materials are inspired by biological systems, that use sophisticated material interfaces to display high levels of adaptability to their environment. Leading researchers present the latest information on the current and potential applications of omniphobic slippery coatings, resl(
