|Metalorganic Catalysts for Synthesis and Polymerization: Recent Results by Ziegler-Natta and Metallocene Investigations
Lowest used price: $72.99
List price: $169.99
45 years after the discovery of transition metals and organometallics as cocatalysts for the polymerization of olefins and for organic synthesis, these compounds have not lost their fascination. The birthday of Karl Ziegler, the great pioneer in this metalorganic catalysis, is now 100 years ago. Polyolefins and polydienes produced by Ziegler-Natta catalysis are the most important plastics and elastomers. New impulses for the polymerization of olefins have been brought about by highly active metallocenes and other single site catalysts. Just by changing the ligands of the organometallic compounds, the structure of the polymers produced can be tailored in a wide manner. In invited lectures and posters, relevant aspects of the metalorganic catalysts for synthesis and polymerization are discussed in this book. This includes mechanism and kinetics, stereochemistry, material properties, and industrial applications.

|Problem Solving in Enzyme Biocatalysis
Lowest new price: $63.11
Lowest used price: $67.09
List price: $114.00
Author: Andrés Illanes
Enzyme biocatalysis is a fast-growing area in process biotechnology that has expanded from the traditional fields of foods, detergents, and leather applications to more sophisticated uses in the pharmaceutical and fine-chemicals sectors and environmental management. Conventional applications of industrial enzymes are expected to grow, with major opportunities in the detergent and animal feed sectors, and new uses in biofuel production and human and animal therapy.
In order to design more efficient enzyme reactors and evaluate performance properly, sound mathematical expressions must be developed which consider enzyme kinetics, material balances, and eventual mass transfer limitations. With a focus on problem solving, each chapter provides abridged coverage of the subject, followed by a number of solved problems illustrating resolution procedures and the main concepts underlying them, plus supplementary questions and answers.
Based on more than 50 years of teaching experience, Problem Solving in Enzyme Biocatalysis is a unique reference for students of chemical and biochemical engineering, as well as biochemists and chemists dealing with bioprocesses.
Contains: Enzyme properties and applications; enzyme kinetics; enzyme reactor design and operation 146 worked problems and solutions in enzyme biocatalysis.
|Catalyst Design: Optimal Distribution of Catalyst in Pellets, Reactors, and Membranes (Cambridge Series in Chemical Engineering)
Lowest new price: $50.01

Author: Massimo Morbidelli
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press
Since heterogeneous catalysis is widely used in chemical, refinery, and pollution-control processes, achieving optimal catalytic performance is a significant issue for chemical engineers and chemists. This book addresses the question of how catalytic material should be distributed inside a porous support to obtain optimal performance. It treats single and multiple reaction systems, isothermal and nonisothermal conditions, pellets, monoliths, fixed-bed reactors, and membrane reactors. The effects of physicochemical and operating parameters are analyzed to gain insight into the underlying phenomena governing the performance of optimally designed catalysts. Throughout, the authors offer a balanced treatment of theory and experiment and stress problems of commercial importance.

Author: K. C. Nicolaou
K.C. Nicolaou - Winner of the Nemitsas Prize 2014 in Chemistry At long last, the mechanism-based and application-oriented handbook of combinatorial chemistry.
Since its very beginning, research in this field has continued to develop at a rapid rate. Increasingly elegant methods are being invented and an even wider range of possible applications is still being discovered, such that combinatorial chemistry is now an integral part of industrial and academic research.
The high-class editorial team - K. C. Nicolaou of The Scripps Institute and UCSD, and R. Hanko and W. Hartwig from Bayer - ensure comprehensive coverage and top quality contributions. This two-volume work deals with synthetic chemistry in all its forms, applications from life sciences, chemistry and
material sciences, all there is to know about compound library design and synthesis, and, of course, the general basics - making it an indispensable reference for synthetic, organic and medicinal chemists, chemical biologists as well as material scientists.
