Contemporary Catalysis : Fundamentals and Current Applications, Hardback Book

Contemporary Catalysis : Fundamentals and Current Applications Hardback


Contemporary Catalysis: Fundamentals and Current Applications deals with the fundamentals and modern practical applications of catalysis.

Topics addressed include historical development and the importance of heterogeneous catalysis in the modern world, surfaces and adsorption, the catalyst (preparation and characterization), the reactor (integral and differential reactors, etc.), and an introduction to spectroscopic and thermal characterization techniques.

Building on this foundation, the book continues with chapters on important industrial processes, potential processes and separate chapters on syngas production, Fischer Tropsch synthesis, petroleum refining, environmental protection, and biomass conversion.

Contemporary Catalysis is an essential resource for chemists, physical chemists, and chemical engineers, as well as graduate and post graduate students in catalysis and reaction engineering.
