Environmental applications: catalysts and removal or re-cycling of by products



Some applications of Mössbauer spectroscopy are presented with environmental implications. In particular, catalytic processes are discussed with examples for catalyst immobilisation, for removal of contaminants and for decomposition of harmful compounds. Examples are also presented for processes of recycling of end products.
