Chemistry & Industry
...provides a useful background to the field.
This volume provides an update on recent developments in computer- aided design and modeling of catalysts for a variety of important industrial applications. Key hurdles in catalyst design are different for each application: the modeling frontiers for methane partial oxidation, automotive catalysis, Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, and polymerization present quite different challenges. Ongoing developments on each frontier allow the practitioner to make CAD of catalysts an integral part of the catalyst development process. For chemical, automotive, petroleum, and fuel engineers; and research, physical, and industrial chemists in the petroleum, energy, and chemical industries as well as computer scientists working in these fields.
