About this book

New and Future Developments in Catalysis is a series of seven books that compile the latest ideas concerning alternate and renewable energy sources and the role that catalysis plays in converting new renewable feedstock into biofuels and biochemicals. Both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts and catalytic processes will be discussed in a unified and comprehensive approach. There will be extensive cross-referencing within all volumes.

The use of catalysts in the nanoscale offers various advantages (increased efficiency and less byproducts), and these are discussed in New and Future Developments in Catalysis: Catalysis by Nanoparticles along with the various catalytic processes using nanoparticles. However, this is not without any risks and the safety aspects and effects on humans and the environment are still unknown. The present data as well as future needs are all part of this volume along with the economics involved. It offers in-depth coverage of all catalytic topics of current interest and outlines future challenges and research areas. It is a clear and visual description of all parameters and conditions, enabling the reader to draw conclusions for a particular case. It outlines the catalytic processes applicable to energy generation and design of green processes.

"Chemists and material scientists survey nanometer-sized particles that have an influence on catalytic activity, selectivity, and stability and modern synthetic methods used to make nano-sized particles. The topics include nanoparticle catalysis for reforming biomass-derived fuels, thin iron heme enzyme films on electrode and nanoparticles for biocatalysis, insights into heterogeneous catalysis through surface science techniques, hydrogenation by nanoparticle catalysts [...] "
