Speech Title: Electrochemical strategies, A bright future for wastewater sensing
Abstract: Monitoring of water quality is an important issue in life science. Water plays an important role in life and the quality of water has a direct relation with human health. The study of the quality of drinking water and water used in agriculture and industry is one of the most important issues in the modern world today. It is important and necessary to study the level of hardness, toxic ions, and biological pollutants for the use of water resources. For this purpose, various techniques have long been used to monitoring water quality. In between, electrochemical methods sowed more attention due to fast response, low cost, high sensitivity and portable ability. This presentation review different approach in electrochemical monitoring of water pollutants and benefits of them.
Keywords: Water Quality, Electrochemical Sensors, Monitoring
