Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts

Proceedings of the 10th International Symposium, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, July 11-15, 2010

These meetings, held every four years, bring together researchers from academia and industry and offer a forum for discussions on the chemistry involved in the preparation of industrial heterogeneous catalysts. Contributions focus on the aspects of catalyst preparation. Reports on physico-chemical characteristics of catalysts and catalytic performances are limited to correlations with the preparation parameters.
