Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics

Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics Lowest new price: $77.99
Lowest used price: $66.00
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.

From Reviews of the First Edition:
'I am impressed by the coverage of the book and it is a valuable addition to the catalysis literature and I highly recommend purchase'
(Energy Sources)

'...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.'
(AFS)

'Overall, this is a valuable book that I will use in teaching undergraduates and postgraduates.'
(Angewandte Chemie - I. E.)

Shape-selective catalysis is important for environmentally-benign chemicals synthesis and hydrocarbon processing, because it provides specific pathways leading to desired products. This book contains 27 peer-reviewed chapters by some leading experts, pioneers, and active researchers in this area. It provides accounts on both historical developments and the state-of-the-art as well as future challenges. The review and original research articles covered a wide variety of topics including (1) introductory account and general overviews, (2) catalysis of organic reactions, (3) methanol conversion to gasoline and olefins, (4) paraffin cyclization and aromatization, (5) conversion of monocyclic hydrocarbons, (6) conversion of polycyclic hydrocarbons, and (6) new concepts and new catalytic materials. The structure and the contents of the book are such that it will be useful not only to scientists and engineers involved in related research and development, but also to researchers and graduate students who are new to this area.

Principles of Catalyst Development (Fundamental and Applied Catalysis)

Author: James T. Richardson
Brand: James T Richardson

Successful industrial heterogeneous catalysts fulfill several key require­ ments: in addition to high catalytic activity for the desired reaction, with high selectivity where appropriate, they also have an acceptable commercial life and are rugged enough for transportation and charging into plant reactors. Additional requirements include the need to come online smoothly in a short time and reproducible manufacturing procedures that involve convenient processes at acceptable cost. The development of heterogeneous catalysts that meet these (often mutually exclusive) demands is far from straightforward, and in addition much of the actual manufacturing tech­ nology is kept secret for commercial reasons-thus there is no modern text that deals with the whole of this important subject. Principles of Catalyst Development, which deals comprehensively with the design, development, and manufacture of practical heterogeneous catalysts, is therefore especially valuable in meeting the long-standing needs of both industrialists and academics. As one who has worked extensively on a variety of catalyst development problems in both industry and academia, James T. Richardson is well placed to write an authoritative book covering both the theory and the practice of catalyst development. Much of the material contained in this book had its origin in a series of widely acclaimed lectures, attended mainly by industrial researchers, given over many years in the United States and Europe. All those in industry who work with catalysts, both beginners and those of considerable experience, should find this volume an essential guide.
