Overview

There is an increasing challenge for chemical industry and research institutions to find cost-efficient and environmentally sound methods of converting natural resources into fuels chemicals and energy. Catalysts are essential to these processes and the Catalysis Specialist Periodical Report series serves to highlight major developments in this area. This series provides systematic and detailed reviews of topics of interest to scientists and engineers in the catalysis field. The coverage includes all major areas of heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis and also specific applications of catalysis such as NOx control kinetics and experimental techniques such as microcalorimetry. Each chapter is compiled by recognized experts within their specialist fields and provides a summary of the current literature.

Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage in major areas of chemical research. Compiled by teams of leading experts in their specialist fields, this series is designed to help the chemistry community keep current with the latest developments in their field. Each volume in the series is published either annually or biennially and is a superb reference point for researchers.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage of progress in the major areas of chemical research, written by experts in their specialist fields, for the benefit of active research chemists. This volume presents five topics of current interest in the field of catalysis: toward supported oxide catalysts via solid-solid wetting; model catalyst studies of supported metal sintering and redispersion kinetics; techniques for measuring zeolite acidity; applications of raman spectroscopy to heterogeneous catalysis; and oxidative coupling of methane. The detailed table of contents substitutes for an index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
