Description

Catalysis, the speeding up of a chemical reaction by a substance which itself does not react, is vital not only to the chemical process industry but also to life itself. The six volume Encyclopedia of Catalysis is the definitive A-to-Z reference work covering the most significant aspects of homogenous, heterogeneous, asymmetric, biomimetic, and biological catalysis. Available both on-line and in print, the state-of-the-art Encyclopedia encompasses the principles of catalysis; the scope of catalytic reactions; the preparation, characterization, and use of catalysts (including catalytic technology); the modeling of catalytic processes; and related reaction engineering techniques. The logical organization of this seminal work renders the text easily accessible to both process personnel and those involved in basic and applied research and development.
