Homogeneous Catalysis: Mechanisms and Industrial Applications (0471372218) cover image
Homogeneous catalysis made easy through real-world examples and illustrations.

The field of homogeneous catalysis has grown dramatically over the past decade, boasting many new applications in the chemical, fine chemical, and pharmaceutical industries. This timely work offers a unified, easy-to-understand treatment of this challenging area of chemistry. With a practical emphasis and a thorough, selective survey of current literature, the authors present homogeneous catalytic reactions proven successful in industrial applications-illustrating both the mechanistic principles and illuminating new areas of academic and industrial research. An ideal self-study guide for inorganic chemists seeking to gain entry into the field as well as a much-needed reference for industry professionals, Homogeneous Catalysis: Mechanisms and Industrial Applications features:
* Clear discussions of the fundamental chemical and chemical engineering concepts relevant to homogeneous catalysis
* Important examples from selected industrial processes
* Extensive references to cutting-edge research with application potential (through March of 1999)
* Many tables and more than 100 illustrations to help explain difficult concepts
* Problems of variable complexities accompanying each chapter
