Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The writing style is one that students will like. It is clear, informal, and yet terse...this book could be used as the primary text for a course in catalysis..." (Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 78, No. 7, July 2001)

"A self-study guide for inorganic chemists seeking to know how to use the method, which has found application in the chemical, fine chemical, and pharmaceutical industries." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 24, No. 4, December 2000)

A self-study guide for inorganic chemists seeking to know how to use the method, which has found application in the chemical, fine chemical, and pharmaceutical industries. Researchers with large Indian companies, Bhaduri (Northwestern U.) and Mukesh survey the literature up to March 1999 from a practical perspective to detail homogeneous catalytic reactions that have proven successful in industrial applications. They describe mechanistic principles, fundamental chemical and chemical engineering concepts, and example applications in selected industrial processes. Annotation c.
