The time has come for an assessment of the most important techniques for the fabrication of advanced catalysts. Catalyst production alone is more than a billion dollar business each year, and the product value of chemical processes using advanced catalysts is a few trillion dollars annually. This book seeks to provide a modern, materials science account of the best and most current techniques for the synthesis of advanced catalytic materials. Until now, there has been no single book which contains a definitive and comprehensive description of the important technologies for catalyst synthesis within the context of modern materials science. Academic researchers both in the catalytic sciences and materials sciences must have the best synthesis technologies available to accomplish the preparation of solid-state materials of specific structure and morphology. Althugh the emphasis is on new synthetic techniques for catalytic applications, the bookpresents all of the important technologies for the fabrication of electronic and structural ceramics, and superconductors.

About the Editor

William Moser

Professor William Moser is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He is also a member of the Center for Inorganic Membrane Studies at WPI. Professor Moser invented both the Cylindrical Internal Reflectance Reactors (CIR-REACTORS) and Optical Fiber coupled CIR-Reactors (OFCIR-REACTORS), which are now commercial products used for reaction monitoring in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis. He was recently issued a patent on remote infrared sensing using optical fiber cables connected to high pressure reactors as well as normal laboratory glassware reactors. Dr. Moser is a Fellow of the New York Academy of Sciences, and is a co-founder of the Organic Reactions Catalysis Society. He is a past Chairman of the ACS Petroleum Division. He is the editor of several books on homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, and has a variety of publications and patents in the catalytic and materials science fields.
