Until now, the literature has offered a rather limited approach to the use of fundamental kinetics and their application to catalytic reactions. Subsequently, this book spans the full range from fundamentals of kinetics and heterogeneous catalysis via modern experimental and theoretical results of model studies to their equivalent large-scale industrial production processes. This second edition includes significant new developments, with all the chapters updated by way of recent examples and relevant new literature. With its focus on practical application, rather than theory, the result is key knowledge for students at technical universities and professionals already working in industry.
From Reviews of the First Edition:
'I am impressed by the coverage of the book and it is a valuable addition to the catalysis literature and I highly recommend purchase'
'...this excellent book is highly recommended to students at technical universities, but also entrants in chemical industry. Furthermore, this informative handbook is also a must for all professionals in the community.'
'Overall, this is a valuable book that I will use in teaching undergraduates and postgraduates.'
(Angewandte Chemie - I. E.)

With 90% of all processes in industrial chemical production being of catalytic nature, heterogeneous catalysis play an enormous role, and consequently, so do the underlying kinetics. To this day, literature has offered a rather limited approach to the use of fundamental kinetics and their application to catalytic reactions. Therefore long-needed, this on-hand book spans the full range from fundamentals of kinetics and heterogeneous catalysis via modern experimental and theoretical results of model studies to their equivalent large-scale industrial production processes. It provides the key knowledge for students at technical universities as well as professionals from the industry.
"Of great value to the community, to professionals as well as graduate and undergraduate students attempting to move into the field of modern catalysis and kinetics."
G. A. Samorjai, University of California
"The authors are experienced experts, who have a fundamental understanding of catalysis - from its theoretical-chemical and physical-chemical basics right up to applications in process technology. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone seeking a solid basis in the field of catalysis."
J. Weikamp in: Chemie Ingenieur Technik
"A hands-on book that is very useful for teaching undergraduates and postgraduates."
Paul A. Sermon in: Angewandte Chemie International Edition
