Although catalysts are responsible for the manufacture and processing of a number of products in daily use, the subject of catalysis is still very much in its infancy, and the complexity of the processes still present major challenges. 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.


A valuable reference source to anyone working in the field of supported metal catalysis.....a valuable addition to any library.
