Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics

AUTHOR Niemantsverdriet, J. W.
PUBLISHER Wiley-Vch (10/16/2017)
PRODUCT TYPE Paperback (Paperback)

Description
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.

From reviews of the prior editions:
'Overall, this is a valuable book that I will use in teaching undergraduates and postgraduates.'
(Angewandte Chemie - I. E.)

'...this excellent book is highly recommended to students at technical universities, but also entrants in chemical industry. Furthermore, this informative handbook is also a must for all professionals in the community.'
(AFS)

'I am impressed by the coverage of the book and it is a valuable addition to the catalysis literature and I highly recommend purchase'

Concepts of Modern Catalysis and Kinetics (first edition 2003, second 2007) is the first textbook to span the full range from fundamentals of kinetics and heterogeneous catalysis via modern experimental and theoretical results of model studies to their equivalent large-scale industrial production processes. This expanded third edition includes significant new developments, particularly in the application of catalysis in energy technology. Several chapters have been updated with new examples, and all chapters now have a separate section with literature references. With its focus on practical application on the basis of fundamental understanding, the book provides key knowledge for students at technical and comprehensive universities and professionals already working in industry or academia.
