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 records vigorous progress in both the science and technology of catalysis, illustrating how fundamental understanding is paving the way to new technology.
· Provides a comprehensive review of all aspects of catalytic research
Physical chemists, chemical engineers, scientists with research interests in catalysis
