Book Review

  Open image in new window Catalysis is a central part of chemistry and biology that interlocks these disciplines through its general importance for daily life. Heterogeneous catalysts play a pivotal role in a variety of industrial processes and technologies, particularly considering that there is an increasing demand to explore environmentally friendly and cost-effective methods of converting natural resources (e.g., biomass and other conventional reactants) into fuels, chemicals and energy. This Volume of Catalysis highlights major developments in these areas. Examples of topics include environmental and energy catalysis, acid/base catalysis, experimental methods, materials synthesis, and syngas conversion. The book is divided into six chapters, which can be read more or less independently of one another.
