Incluye índice, preguntas, ejercicios y apéndice

Introduction to catalysis. - - Kinetics. - - Reaction rate theory. - - Catalyst characterization. - - Solid catalysts. - - Surface reactivity. - - Kinetics of reactions on surfaces. - - Catalysis in practice: synthesis gas and hydrogen. - - Oil refining and petrochemistry. - - Environmental catalysis. - - Questions and exercises.

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.
