This volume describes state-of-the-art advances in fundamental and applied aspects of partial selective oxidation in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, including electrochemical and photo-oxidation. Comprising 93 papers, this book will provide a valuable set of data on reactions of selective oxidation which will be extremely useful to catalyst and related practitioners, whether fundamentalists or highly applied, and to process engineers who wish to evaluate current findings in this field. The wide-range approach to reactions of selective oxidation will disseminate knowledge in specialized areas of selective oxidation, serve as a springboard for new ideas and encourage innovation and creativity.

Being an up-to-date reference source for all those studying in this field, this book should be on the bookshelf of all applied and academic research centres involved in the functionalization of molecules by selective oxidation.
