Interest in structured catalysts is steadily increasing due to the already proven, as well as potential, advantages of these catalysts. Updating the comprehensive coverage of the first edition published in 1998 with the latest science and applications, Structured Catalysts and Reactors, Second Edition gives detailed information on all aspects of structured catalysts and reactors, including: materials, mass transfer, selectivity, activity, and stability; catalyst preparation, design, and characterization; process development; modeling and optimization; reactor design; and operation costs and considerations.

The book first examines how monolithic catalysts are used to clean exhaust gas from gasoline engines, treat industrial off-gases, burn fuels in commercial settings, and synthesize chemicals in two- and three-phase processes. It discusses configurations, microstructure, physical properties, and manufacture of ceramic and metallic monoliths before directing its focus to arranged catalysts and structured packings in terms of mass transfer. The book then explores catalytically active membranes and filters, featuring metallic membranes, permeation mechanisms, preparation and modeling, commercial membranes, and the latest applications, such as zeolitic membranes. Finally, several chapters present techniques for incorporating catalytic species into the structured catalyst support and controlling catalyst nanoporosity.

This book conveys the scientific as well as economic advantages of using these unconventional catalytic techniques. With over 1500 references, tables, drawings, and photographs, as well as in-depth discussions and a new approach to catalytic processes, Structured Catalysts and Reactors, Second Edition is an essential reference for anyone working with or studying catalysis.

Editorial Reviews

Examines a type of catalyst that shows promise of eliminating the chemical and thermal distortions often encountered when using fixed- bed reactors in the chemical industry. After an overview, 22 independent treatments cover reactors using monolithic or honeycomb catalysts in which there is no convective mass transfer over a cross- section of the reactor; those in which there is such transfer; monolithic reactors with permeable walls, called membrane reactors; and preparing and characterizing catalysts. The specific topics include the computer-aided characterization and design of a catalyst pore structure, ceramic catalyst supports and filters for diesel exhaust aftertreatment, parallel-passage and lateral-flow reactors, modeling monolith reactors in three-phase processes, the unconventional utilization of monolithic catalysts for gas-phase reactions, and metal and coated-metal catalysts.
