The book illuminates various aspects of heterogeneous catalysis engineering, from catalysis design, catalyst preparation and characterization, reaction kinetics, mass transfer, and catalytic reactors to the implementation of catalysts in chemical technology. Aimed at graduate students, it is also a useful resource for professionals working in research and development.
Important topic: the production process of nearly every chemical substance or product used today requires a special catalyst.
2nd edition: More coverage of industrial preparation of catalysts and their technological implementations.
