Catalyst Design: Progress and Perspectives

Catalyst Design: Progress and Perspectives Lowest new price: $89.02
Lowest used price: $6.86
List price: $150.00
Author: Rutherford Aris

The complex field of catalysis has, to date, defied attempts toward a systematic approach to designing new catalysts. However, the growing body of knowledge is now sufficient to begin this process, which will lead the way towards effective design techniques and continuing sophistication in the field. This is the first work which addresses this need. It examines various aspects of catalyst design from various points of view which reflect the particular interests and expertise of the authors. Among the topics covered in this work are: the effects of surface morphology and surface composition on catalyst performance, including potential applications and suggestions for improvements; challenges involved in commercial application of catalyst design via anchoring organometallic complexes to solid surfaces; the utilization of support metal systems in catalyst design; mathematical modeling of catalytic systems and their use in designing porous catalysts; and much more.

Quaternary Ammonium Salts: Their Use in Phase-Transfer Catalysis (Best Synthetic Methods)

Quaternary Ammonium Salts: Their Use in Phase-Transfer Catalysis (Best Synthetic Methods) Lowest new price: $190.00
Lowest used price: $132.95
List price: $177.00
Author: R. Alan Jones

This text provides experimental methods for a wide range of organic reactions, systematically arranged according to reaction type, and describes the advantages and limitations of the procedures. Traditional methods to speed up organic reactions involve energy-consuming processes and costly and environmentally "unfriendly" solvents. Additionally, isolation of the product requires energy and time-consuming purification processes. A simple solution, especially for reactions involving anionic reactants, is the use of phase-transfer catalysis. Quaternary ammonium cations have the ability to transfer the anionic reactants as non-solvated ion-pairs from aqueous media into organic media. The resultant effect is to increase the rate of the organic reaction by enhancing the reactivity of the anionic species and increasing the encounter rate with the organic substrate. Side reactions are frequently eliminated so that the overall yield of the desired product is increased.

Quaternary Ammonium Salts presents procedures for reducing reaction times and the need for extreme conditions, which are frequently encountered under standard reaction procedures.

This is the only book to be published on quaternary ammonium salts. Best Synthetic Methods volumes allow the practicing synthetic chemist to choose between all the alternatives and assess their real advantages and limitations. Each volume of the series deals with a particular topic from a practical point of view, giving detailed examples and precise experimental directions and hints. With the emphasis on laboratory use, these volumes represent a comprehensive and practical guide to modern synthetic organic chemistry.

Author: C.M. Starks

Since 1971 when useful working concepts for the technique of phase-transfer catalysis (PTC) were introduced, the understanding, development, and applica­ tions of this method for conducting organic reactions has expanded exponentially. PTC has brought vast new dimensions and options to chemists and chemical engineers. From its use in less than ten commercial processes in 1975, PTC use has increased so that in the early 1990s it is involved in more than 600 industrial applications to manufacture products valued at between 10 and 20 billion U.S. dollars. PTC is widely used for simple organic reactions, steps in synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agricultural chemicals, perfumes, ftavorants, and dyes; for specialty polymerization reactions, polymer modifications, and monomer synthe­ sis; for pollution and environmental control processes; for analysis oftrace organic and inorganic compounds; and for many other applications. Often, PTC offers the best (and sometimes only) practical technique to obtain certain products. The authors experience in teaching a short course on phase-transfer catalysis has shown to us that a newcomer to PTC can easily be frustrated and confused by the large amount of information available in the literature and in patents. The purpose of this book, therefore, was to bring this information together in a logical and user-friendly way, without sacrificing matters of scholarly and fundamental importance.


Applied Homogeneous Catalysis with Organometallic Compounds: A Comprehensive Handbook in Two Volumes

Applied Homogeneous Catalysis with Organometallic Compounds: A Comprehensive Handbook in Two Volumes Lowest used price: $194.59
List price: $695.00

Finally as softcover:
Homogeneous catalysis is the success story of organometallic chemistry. Since the discovery of hydroformylation by O. Roelen in 1938, catalytic applications have paved the way of organometallic compounds in industry. Bulk and fine chemicals, and even natural products are being produced via homogeneous organometallic catalysis. The enormous breadth of this topic in view of both basic research and industrial application is met congenially in this handbook edited jointly by W. A. Herrmann (Technical University Munich) and B. Cornils (Hoechst AG, Frankfurt). The list of over 90 contributors reads like a who-is-who in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. In this handbook, experts will find the current state-of-the-art in their field and advanced students will benefit from the concise treatment of important catalytic reactions and processes. With its balanced presentation of the truly interdisciplinary topic and its outstanding editor- and authorship, the 'Cornils/Herrmann' is beyond common standards.


Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics

Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics Lowest new price: $69.26
Lowest used price: $82.15
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.)
