Preface. Keynotes. Catalysis from first principles (J.K. Norskov). Complexities and dynamics of the enantioselective active site in heterogeneous catalysis (R. Raval, C.J. Baddeley, S. Haq, S. Louafi, P. Murray, C. Muryn, M. Ortega Lorenzo, J. Williams). Intrinsic activities and pore diffusion effect in hydrocarbon cracking in steamed Y zeolite (H.H. Kung). Internal reforming in solid oxide fuel cells (R.M. Ormerod). Microchemical reactors for heterogeneously catalyzed reactions (D. Hönicke).

Transient Studies. Novel frequency response techniques for the study of kinetics in heterogeneous catalysis (M. Cavers, J.M. Davidson, I.R. Harkness, G.S. McDougall, L.V.C. Rees). Reactivity of novel metal substituted heteropolyacid catalysts using steady-state and transient response kinetics (H.T. Randall, P.L. Mills, K. Kourtakis). Use of isotopic transient methods for mechanistic analysis of ethylene hydroformylation over 4 wt% Rh/SiO2 catalyst (S.S.C. Chuang, S.A. Hedrick, M.A. Brundage). CO oxidation over a supported Pt catalyst: transient kinetics using temporal analysis of products (TAP) (A.H.J. Colaris, J.H.B. Hoebink, J.C. Schouten). Transient kinetics of ethylene and carbon monoxide oxidation for automotive exhaust gas catalysis: experiments and modeling (J.M.A. Harmsen, J.H.B. Hoebink, J.C. Schouten). Dynamics of NO adsorption and transformation over supported Pt catalysts for the treatment of lean burn engine emissions (G.E. Arena, A. Bianchini, G. Centi, F. Vazzana, P. Vitali). Effect of catalyst deactivation on the dynamics of cyclic reactive processes (D.O. Borio, N.S. Schbib, J.E. Gatica). Propyne hydrogenation over a silica-supported platinum catalyst studied under transient conditions (D.R. Kennedy, B. Cullen, D. Lennon, G. Webb, P.R. Dennison, S.D.


The symposium "Reaction Kinetics and the Development of Catalytic Processes" is the continuation of the very successful International Symposium "Dynamics of Surfaces and Reaction Kinetics in Heterogeneous Catalysis", held in September 1997 in Antwerp, Belgium. These proceedings contain a unique series of top level plenary lectures mainly focused on

• the dynamics of catalytic surfaces

• the interaction of the reacting molecules with the solid catalyst

• the elementary steps of reaction pathways and molecular kinetics.

Surface science techniques, molecular modeling, transient kinetic studies, sophisticated and specific reactors are included to a growing extent in the kinetic modeling and the development of catalytic processes. How this is practiced today and how it will evolve in the coming years, and what benefit can be expected for a more fundamentally based approach is the aim of the symposium.
