Catalysis by Non-metals: Rules of Catalyst Selection presents the development of scientific principles for the collection of catalysts. It discusses the investigation of the mechanism of chemosorption and catalysis. It addresses a series of properties of solid with catalytic activity. Some of the topics covered in the book are the properties of a solid and catalytic activity in oxidation-reduction reactions; the difference of electronegativities and the effective charges of atoms; the role of d-electrons in the catalytic properties of a solid; the color of solids; and proton-acid and proton-base properties of a surface. The catalytic activity and structure of solids are covered. The type of crystal lattice and crystalline lattice parameters are discussed. The text describes the decomposition of alcohols. A study of the dehydrogenation and hydrogenation reactions is presented. A chapter is devoted to the decomposition of inorganic hydrides. Another section focuses on the hydrogen-deuterium exchange and other simple reactions. The book can provide useful information to scientists, physicists, students, and researchers.
