Abstract: newlineIn atmospheric air contains numerous kinds of chemical species, natural and artificial, some of which are vital to our life, while many others are harmful more or less. The vital gases like oxygen and humidity should be kept at adequate levels in living atmospheres, while hazardous gases should be controlled to be under the designated levels. As for lower hydrocarbons and hydrogen, which are used as fuels, their explosion after leakage into air is a major concern, and 1/10 of lower explosion limit for each gas is taken as an alarming level. For toxic gases, offensive odors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other air pollutants, their standards have been legislated by various laws based on the strength of toxicity or offensiveness of each gas. The atmospheric pollution can cause major disasters within a short period of time, since this type of pollution can diffuse rapidly over large areas. The emitting sources of the atmospheric pollution can be a stationary or mobile source. Stationary sources include houses, workplaces, thermal power stations, whereas mobile sources include automobiles, trains, ships, and so forth. Stationary emitting sources also cover many diverse fields, such as oil refineries, chemical plants, metal refineries, and grocery plants. In particular, with the tremendous increase in automobiles and consumption of fossil fuel, the atmospheric environment has deteriorated significantly. To prevent or minimize the damage caused by atmospheric pollution, monitoring and controlling systems are needed that can rapidly and reliably detect and quantify pollution sources within the range of the regulating standard values. The growing human population, environmental pollution and industrialization along with diminishing fossil fuel are the major problems for future generations. To overcome increasing energy demands, there is an emergent need to extract energy from the pollution free renewable energy resources as well as store this energy in effective and clean energy storage devices, to fulfil the present energy demands of society. To solve such problems nanotechnology plays a key role in a material science.
