This chapter accentuates the latest breakthrough in the advanced and intelligent materials' catalysis, sensing and wastewater treatment applications. The various engineered materials are securing the interest of researchers for optimized technical utilizations. This chapter discusses the number of catalytic and sensing operations of advanced and intelligent materials in detail. Catalysis and sensing phenomena involve the conversion of obtained signals into a readable format, and advanced materials with their superior optical, semiconducting or physical properties are studied widely. However, wastewater treatment needs adsorption and advanced oxidation of the different types of contaminants by the advanced materials. The list of advanced materials includes many organic/inorganic and natural/synthetic platforms with desired properties. These advanced materials have high biocompatibility and easy biodegradable characteristics. With the latest synthesis and functionalization methods, these advanced materials are becoming nanohybrid systems. This chapter covers implementing these nanohybrid systems for catalysis, wastewater treatment and sensing. The first half of the chapter focuses on introducing the basic catalytic, sensing and wastewater processes based on the application of advanced materials. However, the second half includes introducing various advanced materials in the techniques mentioned above.
