"The use of carbon materials in heterogeneous catalysis offers many potential benefits, including unparalleled flexibility in tailoring catalyst properties to meet specific needs. This book promotes technological advances in the field by establishing the state of the art, identifying areas where more research is needed, and advocating for more systematic approaches. Readers gain a better understanding of the chemistry of carbon surfaces, helping them design new catalysts. Moreover, they gain new insights into improving quality control and production methods in order to produce high-performance materials." References at the end of each chapter guide readers to the primary literature, where they can explore each topic in greater depth. This unique book brings researchers fully up to date with the latest advances, supporting their efforts to develop new carbon materials and fully exploit their potential in catalysis.
