About this book

This work delineates the effect of different reaction variables on the outcome of heterogeneously catalyzed reactions, and explains how to optimize the product yield of specific compounds. Metal catalysis, simple and complex oxides, zeolites and clays are discussed, both as catalysts and as potential supports for catalytically active metals.


Part 1 Basic concepts: catalysis; the active site; surface frontier molecular orbitals; reaction variables; catalytic reactors; reaction kinetics. Part 2 The catalyst: the catalyst; catalyst supports; oxide catalysts; metal catalysts; unsupported metals; supported metals. Part 3 Heterogenously catalyzed reactions of synthetic interest: hydrogenation 1 - selectivity; catalytic hydrogenation 2 - alkenes and dienes; hydrogenation 3 - alkynes; hydrogenation 4 - aromatic compounds; hydrogenation 5 - carbonyl compounds; hydrogenation 6 - nitrogen containing functional groups; hydrogenolysis; oxidation; other reactions.
