Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics

Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics Lowest new price: $79.21
Lowest used price: $87.24
List price: $120.00
Author: I. Chorkendorff

In the past 12 years since its publication, Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics has become a standard textbook for graduate students at universities worldwide. Emphasizing fundamentals from thermodynamics, physical chemistry, spectroscopy, solid state chemistry and quantum chemistry, it introduces catalysis from a molecular perspective, and stresses how it is interwoven with the field of reaction kinetics. The authors go on to explain how the world of reacting molecules is connected to the real world of industry, by discussing the various scales (nano - micro - macro) that play a role in catalysis. Reflecting the modern-day focus on energy supplies, this third edition devotes attention to such processes as gas-to-liquids, coal-to-liquids, biomass conversion and hydrogen production.

From reviews of the prior editions:
'Overall, this is a valuable book that I will use in teaching undergraduates and postgraduates.'
(Angewandte Chemie - I. E.)

'...this excellent book is highly recommended to students at technical universities, but also entrants in chemical industry. Furthermore, this informative handbook is also a must for all professionals in the community.'

'I am impressed by the coverage of the book and it is a valuable addition to the catalysis literature and I highly recommend purchase'

Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics

Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics Lowest new price: $70.80
Lowest used price: $62.10
List price: $104.00
Author: I. Chorkendorff

Until now, the literature has offered a rather limited approach to the use of fundamental kinetics and their application to catalytic reactions. Subsequently, this book spans the full range from fundamentals of kinetics and heterogeneous catalysis via modern experimental and theoretical results of model studies to their equivalent large-scale industrial production processes. This second edition includes significant new developments, with all the chapters updated by way of recent examples and relevant new literature. With its focus on practical application, rather than theory, the result is key knowledge for students at technical universities and professionals already working in industry.

Principles and Problems in Physical Chemistry for Biochemists

Principles and Problems in Physical Chemistry for Biochemists Lowest new price: $49.00
Lowest used price: $16.90
List price: $65.00
Author: Nicholas C. Price
Brand: Oxford University Press USA

What use is physical chemistry to the student of biochemistry and biology? This central question is answered in this book mainly through the use of worked examples and problems. The book starts by introducing the laws of thermodynamics, and then uses these laws to derive the equations relevant to the student in dealing with chemical equilibria (including the binding of small molecules to proteins), properties of solutions, acids and bases, and oxidation-reduction processes. The student is thus shown how a knowledge of thermodynamic qualities makes it possible to predict whether, and how, a reaction will proceed.
Thermodynamics, however, gives no information about how fast a reaction will happen. The study of the rates at which processes occur (kinetics) forms the second main theme of the book. This section poses and answers questions such as `how is the rate of a reaction affected by temperature, pH, ionic strength, and the nature of the reactants? These same ideas are then shown to be useful in the study of enzyme-catalysed reactions.

'Spectroscopy in Catalysis' describes the most important modern analytical techniques used to investigate catalytic surfaces.

Each chapter uses current applications to illustrate the type of information that the technique provides and evaluates its possibilities and limitations.
