Overview

This long-awaited reference source is the first book to focus on this important and hot topic. As such, it provides examples from a wide array of fields where catalyst design has been based on new insights and understanding, presenting such modern and important topics as self-assembly, nature-inspired catalysis, nano-scale architecture of surfaces and theoretical methods. With its inclusion of all the useful and powerful tools for the rational design of catalysts, this is a true "must have" book for every researcher in the field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is composed of a nice selection of chapters written by authorities within their respective discipline. This book should find a home on the bookshelf of chemical engineers, chemists, and materials scientists, especially those whose focus is on the synthesis of catalytic materials." (Book News, August 2009)

"The results live up to the high expectations." (ChemCatChem, 2009)
