About this title

Synopsis:

Using new instrumentation and experimental techniques that allow scientists to observe chemical reactions and molecular properties at the nanoscale, the authors of Surface and Nanomolecular Catalysis reveal new insights into the surface chemistry of catalysts and the reaction mechanisms that actually occur at a molecular level during catalysis. While each chapter contains the necessary background and explanations to stand alone, the diverse collection of chapters shows how developments from various fields each contributed to our current understanding of nanomolecular catalysis as a whole.

The book describes how the size and shape of materials at the nanoscale can change their chemical and physical properties and promote more efficient reactions with fewer by-products. First it highlights the preparation, characterization, and applications of heterogeneous and supported metal catalysts. Then it covers the engineering of catalytic processes, structure and reaction control, and texturological properties of catalytic systems. The authors explain how surface science can elucidate reaction mechanisms and discuss the growing role of high-throughput experimentation and combinatorial approaches in catalysis.

From fundamental concepts to future directions, Surface and Nanomolecular Catalysis offers a well-rounded compilation of noteworthy developments which will continue to expand and transform our understanding of catalysis, particularly in the context of clean energy and environmental applications such as fuel cells.

Review:

I was delighted to see that each chapter has at the end a series of questions/problems, although the level of these ranges from merely reproducing knowledge to solving an insightful case study. It is clear that the latter is my preference when using a specific chapter for teaching students.
...gives up-to-date views on a wide variety of catalysis topics and their important contributions to different areas of technology...certainly a valuable book for anyone with an interest in molecular views of heterogeneous catalysis. Furthermore, a selection of individual chapters can be used as a basis for university courses on catalysis at the Masters and PhD student level.
-Bert Weckhuysen, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Vol. 46, 2007
