Provides a complete and accessible A to Z collection of information on catalysis

This updated and enlarged must-have edition of a classic book on catalysis explains the important terms of all aspects of the subject - including biocatalysis, homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis - as well as the terms associated with it. It also looks at related topics like spectroscopy or analytical methods. Featuring 20% more content than the previous edition, it comprehensively covers the topic in a clear and concise manner, and includes abbreviations, brief biographic entries of important scientists who have worked in catalysis, trade names, important catalytic processes, named reactions, reactions, and other important keywords in the general field of catalysis.

Written by more than 200 top scientists and with more than 15,000 entries on all aspects of catalysis, Catalysis from A to Z: A Concise Encyclopedia, 5th Edition is filled with figures, tables, cross-references, and references. It covers acids, ligands, catalytic reactions in organic synthesis, kinetics and thermodynamics of catalytic reactions, and catalyst labeling. The book also looks at theoretical backgrounds of catalytic reactions, industrial catalytic processes, autoclaves, colloids, nanomaterials, spectroscopically methods for catalyst analysis, and more.
