Addresses the prediction of chemical activity and selectivity of new heterogeneous catalysts, based on a pattern recognition approach. Written by an internationally recognized (and prolific) researcher, this monograph expands the usefulness of catalysis in synthetic chemistry, where study of the mechanisms of catalysis can help answer questions of chemical structure, bonding, and reactivity. Illustrated.
