Description

A discussion of the most important classes of heterogeneous catalysts, adopting a systematic approach such that the design of each catalyst is rationally explained.
Looking at the maximum amount of active sites and the optimum structure for each type of catalyst, the book provides a unique resource for understanding how heterogeneous catalysts operate so as to improve common reactions in this multi-billion dollar business. It also aims to guide readers in designing novel heterogeneous catalysts, as even small advances can lead to immense savings.
A must-read for researchers working with heterogeneous catalysts, both in academia and industry, and for graduate students in chemistry, chemical engineering and materials science.
