|Characterization and Catalyst Development: An Interactive Approach (Acs Symposium Series)
Lowest new price: $40.75
Lowest used price: $3.55
List price: $115.00
This "must-have" volume bridges the gap between catalysis science and development. It is targeted toward the catalyst scientist who needs to understand the characterization techniques as they apply to catalysts, and toward the instrumentalists who must recognize the characterization requirements of the catalyst scientist. It is the first volume to demonstrate the integrative approach for developing new catalysts, improving processes, and understanding catalysis science.
|Catalysis and Zeolites: Fundamentals and Applications
Lowest new price: $275.88
Lowest used price: $107.50
List price: $609.00
Zeolites and zeolite-like microporous materials have been playing an ever-increasing role in heterogeneous catalysis for more than three decades. An impressive number of large-scale industrial processes in petroleum refining, petrochemistry and the manufacture of organic chemicals are nowadays carried out using zeolite catalysts, and the future of zeolites in industrial catalysis continues to be bright. Authored by an international team of renowned scientists, the seven chapters of this book present a comprehensive overview of the application of zeolites in industrial catalysis, while also providing a true scientific understanding of how zeolites are synthesized, modified and characterized, and putting special emphasis on shape-selective catalysis, which is a unique feature of zeolites.

Catalysis is one of the most important technologies in our modern world. We depend on it to produce materials, such as plastics, from oil; we depend on it to produce fuel to power our cars; we depend on it to remove the pollutants emitted from the engines of those cars; we even depend on it for the functioning and growth of our own bodies. It is therefore very important that we ask ourselves the question, 'what is catalysis?' and this book does exactly that, concentrating on the most important type of catalysis for industry, namely heterogeneous catalysis. The book is split into 3 sections, dealing with the fundamentals of adsorption and reaction at surfaces, the nature of heterogeneous catalysts and their synthesis, and the applications of this technology in the modern world. This book will be useful for teachers, undergraduates, and as an introductory book for graduates specialising in catalysis and surface science.
|Catalyst Design: Progress and Perspectives
Lowest used price: $3.32
List price: $150.00
Author: Rutherford Aris
The complex field of catalysis has, to date, defied attempts toward a systematic approach to designing new catalysts. However, the growing body of knowledge is now sufficient to begin this process, which will lead the way towards effective design techniques and continuing sophistication in the field. This is the first work which addresses this need. It examines various aspects of catalyst design from various points of view which reflect the particular interests and expertise of the authors. Among the topics covered in this work are: the effects of surface morphology and surface composition on catalyst performance, including potential applications and suggestions for improvements; challenges involved in commercial application of catalyst design via anchoring organometallic complexes to solid surfaces; the utilization of support metal systems in catalyst design; mathematical modeling of catalytic systems and their use in designing porous catalysts; and much more.
|Heterogeneous Catalysis for the Synthetic Chemist (Chemical Industries)
Lowest new price: $65.14
Lowest used price: $65.28
List price: $262.00
Author: Robert L. Augustine
This work delineates the effect of different reaction variables on the outcome of heterogeneously catalyzed reactions, and explains how to optimize the product yield of specific compounds. Metal catalysis, simple and complex oxides, zeolites and clays are discussed, both as catalysts and as potential supports for catalytically active metals.
|Catalysis by Ceria and Related Materials (Catalytic Science Series)
Lowest new price: $128.28
Lowest used price: $128.17
List price: $144.00
Author: Alessandro Trovarelli
The use of CeO2-based materials in catalysis has attracted considerable attention in recent years, particularly in applications like environmental catalysis, where ceria has shown great potential. This volume critically reviews advances in the field, with the focus on both fundamental and applied issues. The first few chapters cover structural and chemical properties of ceria and related materials, such as phase stability, reduction behaviour, synthesis, interaction with probe molecules (CO, O2, NO), and metal-support interaction - all presented from the viewpoint of catalytic applications. The use of computational techniques and ceria surfaces and films for model catalytic studies are also reviewed. The second part of the work provides a critical evaluation of the role of ceria in the most important catalytic processes: three-way catalysis, catalytic wet oxidation and fluid catalytic cracking. Other topics include oxidation-combustion catalysts, electrocatalysis and the use of cerium catalysts/additives in diesel soot abatement technology.

|Applied Homogeneous Catalysis with Organometallic Compounds: A Comprehensive Handbook in Three Volumes
Lowest new price: $910.66
Lowest used price: $467.08
List price: $1,050.00
Homogeneous catalysis is the success story of organometallic chemistry. Since the discovery of hydroformylation by O. Roelen in 1938, catalytic applications have paved the way of organometallic compounds in industry. Bulk and fine chemicals, and even natural products are being produced via homogeneous organometallic catalysis.
The enormous breadth of this topic in view of both basic research and industrial application is met in this three volume handbook edited jointly by W. A. Herrmann and B. Cornils. The list of contributors reads like a who-is-who in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. In this handbook, experts will find the current state-of-the-art in their field and advanced students will benefit from the concise treatment of important catalytic reactions and processes. With its balanced presentation of the truly interdisciplinary topic and its outstanding editor- and authorship, the 'Cornils/Herrmann' is beyond common standards. Now in its second, completely revised and enlarged edition!

This multidisciplinary reference bridges the gap between theory and practice by dealing fully with the principles of heterogeneous catalysis and the practicalities of the catalyst and processes used in producing ammonia, hydrogen, and methanol by means of hydrocarbon steam reforming. The handbook also covers oxidation reactions in making formaldehyde, nitric acid, and sulphuric acid conversion of methanol to formaldehyde. The work will be of interest to industrial chemists and engineers involved in research, development, and plant operation.
