In the last two decades impressive advances have been made toward the understanding and quantitative description of the kinetics. Despite these advances, however, the use of mathematical modelling of gas-solid catalytic reactors in industry is still limited. By consolidating progress in the understanding of catalytic processes, this book applies these fundamental advances to the development of models for design, simulation and optimization of industrial reactors. Paying particular attention to the verification of the developed models against industrial data, these models are used to optimize the performance of many practical reactor cases. Using a systems approach for the development of the different components and the resulting overall models, the book is easy to read and gives an insight into the behaviour of these complex industrial systems. In addition, the practical relevance of bifurcation, instability and chaos to industrial reactors is briefly discussed.

Author: G. C. Bond
This book describes the chemical basis of heterogeneous catalysis and the important industrial purposes to which it is applied. Unlike most chemistry textbooks, this one pays special attention to the physical forms of catalysts used in industry and to the types of reactor in which they are employed, with a chapter included on applications to environmental pollution control. For the second edition the author has completely revised, updated, and expanded the text, adding a new introductory treatment of the band theory of solids and sections covering such recent developments as Fisher-Tropsch synthesis and applications of catalysis to problems of energy supply. The problems at the end of each chapter, the stress on chemical principles, and the comprehensive, annotated reading list all contribute to make this volume a thorough, clear, and challenging textbook for students in physical and inorganic chemistry courses as well as for those in chemical engineering and industrial chemistry.

This multidisciplinary reference bridges the gap between theory and practice by dealing fully with the principles of heterogeneous catalysis and the practicalities of the catalyst and processes used in producing ammonia, hydrogen, and methanol by means of hydrocarbon steam reforming. The handbook also covers oxidation reactions in making formaldehyde, nitric acid, and sulphuric acid conversion of methanol to formaldehyde. The work will be of interest to industrial chemists and engineers involved in research, development, and plant operation.

Author: L. K. Doraiswamy
This book will formally launch "organic synthesis engineering" as a distinctive field in the armory of the reaction engineer. Its main theme revolves around two developments: catalysis and the role of process intensification in enhancing overall productivity. Each of these two subjects are becoming increasingly useful in organic synthesis engineering, especially in the production of medium and small volume chemicals and enhancing reaction rates by extending laboratory techniques, such as ultrasound, phase transfer catalysts, membrane reactor, and microwaves, to industrial scale production. This volume describes the applications of catalysis in organic synthesis and outlines different techniques of reaction rate and/or selectivity enhancement against a background of reaction engineering principles for both homogeneous and heterogeneous systems.
|Comprehensive Enantioselective Organocatalysis: Catalysts, Reactions, and Applications, 3 Volume Set

Lowest used price: $473.40
List price: $635.00
Structured in three parts this manual recollects efficient organocatalytic transformations around clear principles that meet actual standard in asymmetric synthesis. Chapters were written by acknowledged leaders of the organocatalysis field, and are presented in a concise way. Volume 1: Privileged Catalysts gives insight to readers to the continuously increasing variety of catalysts, and the relatively complex interactions that make organocatalytic reactions selective. An appendix recollects catalyst structures with the adequate cross-references. Volume 2: Activations covers the fundamental activation types (non-covalent and covalent activations) and helps understanding the importance of physical parameters, and in particular, the role of water, that influences reactivity and selectivity. Volume 3: Reactions and Applications highlights transformations by reaction types. The final part of this volume is dedicated to application in multistep synthesis and industrial applications.
Considering the ever increasing interest in the organocatalysis field, the book aims addressing to a large audience: to academic, and, industrial researchers, students and teachers who are interested in synthetic organic chemistry at advanced level. This book provides non-specialists with an introduction to the topic as well as serving as a valuable source for newcomers and researchers searching for an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of this promising area of synthetic organic chemistry.
