Catalysis is the acceleration of a chemical reaction by a catalyst, a substance that notably affects the rate of a chemical reaction without itself being consumed or altered. Since 1948, Advances in Catalysis has filled the gap between the papers that report on and the textbooks that teach in the diverse areas of catalysis research. The editors of and contributors to Advances in Catalysis are dedicated to recording progress in this area.

"This volume of Advances in Catalysis consists of important contributions covering three different topics: homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, and chemical reactor engineering. The content is of current interest and would be useful to those working in catalysis, process development, and specific areas of the reactions discussed."--Catal Lett (2012) Vol. 142 pages 397-398
