Almost all aspects of heterogeneous catalysis are covered in this proceedings volume: papers on surface science and modern spectroscopic techniques provide a particularly extensive coverage of catalyst characterization, while other papers update the broader area of major types of catalysts, such as oxides, sulfides, supported metals and zeolites as well as presenting new developments.
Major catalytic reactions are covered including those involving carbon monoxide hydrogenation, emission control and hydrotreating. The current important area of octane enhancement catalysts and processes and important industrial concepts in hydrotreating are dealt with, including new aspects of shape-selective catalysis. The applied engineering topics of reactions engineering and catalyst deactivation are also updated. New concepts in theoretical catalysis are presented and several new homogeneous catalyst systems are reported.
The book concludes with four illuminating papers on the future reactions of catalysis as applied to energy processing, chemicals production and, in particular, to biocatalysis on a large scale.
Many of the contributors are leaders in their fields and, with almost 1,000 pages and 85 papers, this book provides an enormous amount of information which will be extremely valuable to catalyst and related practitioner, whether fundamentalists or highly applied, who wish to evaluate current findings in their fields.
