Four decades of landmark discoveries in heterogeneous catalysis
Presenting an historical record of four decades of landmark research, this book draws together an important collection of heterogeneous catalysis papers published by Professor Eli Ruckenstein and his colleagues. One of the most prolific leaders in the field of heterogeneous catalysis today, Dr. Ruckenstein has pioneered methods in catalysis, surface chemistry, and materials science that are now used to develop new chemicals, energy sources, and materials.
Heterogeneous Catalysis offers new insights into the underlying mechanisms and chemistry of heterogeneous catalysis. Moreover, the book will help readers develop new applications for both basic research and industry. Coverage includes:
- Catalysts in various reactions including methane CO2 reforming, methane partial oxidation, and catalytic combustion
- Applications of materials such as zeolites, mesoporous V-Mg-O oxides, polymers, and polymer coated SiO2 as catalysts or catalyst supports
- Theoretical and experimental investigations of metal sintering in model metal catalysts during heating in different atmospheres
- Theoretical approaches relevant to heterogeneous catalysis
Section introductions tie the chemistry discussed in the assembled papers to today's research and development, enabling readers to gain a deep appreciation of the history of heterogeneous chemistry as well as the current state of the science and technology. Moreover, readers will gain new perspectives on solving current challenges in the field, enabling them to use Dr. Ruckenstein's methods to develop new chemicals and materials.
Heterogeneous Catalysis is recommended for both students and professionals in catalysis science and materials science. All readers will benefit from the experience and wisdom of Eli Ruckenstein, one of the most esteemed scientists in the world today.
