Editorial Reviews

The symposium was called to open a dialogue between the chemists and physicists who deal with developing a catalyst, and the chemical engineers who are called on for the mechanical aspects of heterogeneous catalysis, on which are based many processes in the chemical industry. The goal is to establish a practice of constructing an integrated kinetic model based on information about the working catalyst gained from classical steady-state experimentation, from studies using surface science techniques, from quantum chemical calculations providing insights into possible reactions pathways, and from transient experimentation with reactions and reactors. The 45 contributions include the keynote addresses and a selection of the oral and poster presentations. Among the keynote topics are catalytic surface reaction pathways and energetics from first principles, molecular kinetics, and reaction kinetics as a basis for the optimal transient operation of catalytic reactors. The oral communications cover theoretical and experimental studies on the dynamics of surfaces, catalysis and kinetics, and the transient operation of reactions and reactors. Reproduced from typescripts. No subject index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
