Catalysis in Application presents a snapshot of the most up-to-date developments in the field of applied catalysis. Coverage is principally in the areas of hydrogenation, dehydrogenation, chiral catalysis, environmental catalysis and catalyst deactivation, combining a unique mix of chemistry and chemical engineering.With its wide-ranging coverage, this book will be a welcome addition to the shelves of every practitioner in catalysis, both in industry and academia.

Industry Reviews

A valuable reference source to anyone working in the field of supported metal catalysis.....a valuable addition to any library. * Applied Organometallic Chemistry, 2004, No.18, 55 (Richard P K Wells) *
"Anyone desiring an overview into the unknown could do worse than browse through this book." * Chemistry & Industry, 17 November 2003, p 28 *
"... interesting industrial problems and some promising solutions for them." * Reaction Kinetics and Catalysis Letters, Vol 80, No 2, p 395-397 *
"... provides a good reference for the many catalysis topics described ... This book will be a worthwhile acquisition to the catalyst practitioner involved with fine chemicals, enantioselective synthesis, pharmaceuticals and surface deactivation mechanisms. " * CATTECH, Vol 7-6, p 236 *
