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.

Batteries and fuel cells are considered to be environmentally friendly devices for storage and production of electricity, and they are gaining considerable attention. The preparation of the feed for fuel cells (fuel) as well as the catalysts and the various conversion processes taking place in these devices are covered in New and Future Developments in Catalysis: Batteries, Hydrogen Storage and Fuel Cells, together with the catalytic processes for hydrogen generation and storage. An economic analysis of the various processes is also part of this volume and enables an informed choice of the most suitable process. 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.

"This book is part of a group of seven on the latest ideas and developments on the subject of alternative and renewable energy sources, and the role that catalysis plays in converting new renewable feed stocks into biofuels and biochemical [...] Both homogenous and heterogenic catalysts and catalytic processes are discussed in a unified and comprehensive approach in this series."

"Chemists and physicists review current research and future possibilities regarding improved energy storage using the three modalities. The topics include a novel enzymatic technology for removing hydrogen sulfide from biogas, transition metal nanoparticles as catalysts in generating hydrogen from boron-base hydrogen storage materials, catalysis in fuel cells and hydrogen production, new trends in direct ethanol fuel cells, and catalytic materials and processes in secondary lithium-ion batteries."
