This book offers a comprehensive overview of the most recent developments in both total oxidation and combustion and also in selective oxidation.
For each topic, fundamental aspects are paralleled with industrial applications.
The book covers oxidation catalysis, one of the major areas of industrial chemistry, outlining recent achievements, current challenges and future opportunities.
One distinguishing feature of the book is the selection of arguments which are emblematic of current trends in the chemical industry, such as miniaturization, use of alternative, greener oxidants, and innovative systems for pollutant abatement.
Topics outlined are described in terms of both catalyst and reaction chemistry, and also reactor and process technology.
