Catalysis from abzymes to zeolite: the successful encyclopedia now in its third, updated and enlarged edition with 50% more content in three volumes! Designed as a first-stop source for chemists, biochemists, physicists, and engineers whose permanent or occasional interest lies in catalysis, the encyclopedia is at once comprehensive, succinct and easy to use. More than 200 top scientists from all over the world have contributed a total of over 8000 entries with 3300 cross references - providing important information, 20,000 citations and numerous process schemes on all aspects of bio-, heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, as well as on analytical methods and techniques, and industrial processes. The international significance of this work is underlined by the fact that the keywords are also given in German and French.
