Catalysis in Organic Syntheses 1976 provides information pertinent to organic chemistry and the practical applications of catalysis. This book reviews the influence of mass and heat transport on the performance of heterogeneous catalysts.

Organized into five parts encompassing 17 chapters, this compilation of papers starts with an overview of how the formulation of the catalyst and the selection of operating conditions influence the chemistry of the reactions that occur. This text then examines the Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), which is a powerful tool for the analysis of surface and subsurface elemental composition in the fields of metallurgy, semiconductors, and thin films. Other chapters consider the importance of differential thermal analysis (DTA) as a useful method for rapidly screening potential catalysts. The final chapter deals with the rhodium-catalyzed nuclear hydrogenation of N-aryl amides, which is an excellent laboratory method for the preparation of N-alicyclic amides. This book is a valuable resource for organic and catalytic chemists.
