    Water is the most useful, wonderful and abundant compound on earth. It is a vital component of the living sources. It is a proven theory that one can live without food for many number of days but one cannot live without water. Water is the important constituent of all the body fluids, without which all the cells or organisms are in crystalline or dead state. (For example, the human body contains 70%, terestrial plants 50 – 75% and aquatic plants 95 – 99%). Water is not only essential for the lives of animals and plants, but also occupies a unique position in industry

    Electrochemistry is the branch of chemistry which deals with the transformation of electrical energy into chemical energy and vice versa. It is the study of phenomena at electrode solution interfaces. Electrochemistry deals with the relationship between electrical, chemical phenomena and the laws of interaction of these phenomena. The branch of electrochemistry is of major technical importance.

    Materials having components with in size less than 100 nm at least in one dimension are known as Nanomaterials. The prefix (nano) in the word nanomaterials means a billionth (1 × 10–9 m). Atoms are very small and the diameter of a single atom can vary from 0.1 to 0.5 nm. It deals with various structures of matter having dimensions of order of a billionth of metre.
