Considering the challenge of sustainability facing our society in the coming decades, catalysis is without any doubt a research area of major importance. In this regard, asymmetric organocatalysis, now considered a pillar of green chemistry, deserves particular attention. The first chapter of this volume examines the topic of asymmetric organocatalysis...
Providing an integrated approach to the various aspects of catalysis, this textbook is ideal for graduate students from catalysis, engineering, and organic synthesis.
This book aims to introduce the basic concepts involved in industrial catalytic processes. In the second part the key experimental methods for the physicochemical characterization of catalysts are presented, as well as the currently used catalyst pre and post treatments.
Aimed at master's and Ph. D. students with a limited background in chemistry.
The development of catalysts is the most sophisticated art in chemical sciences. It can be read like a story book when the critical scientific contents are presented in a chronological manner with short and simple sentences. This book will meets these criteria. To address the sustainability issues of existing chemical...
Catalysis by Materials with Well-Defined Structures examines the latest developments in the use of model systems in fundamental catalytic science.
