About this book

New and Future Developments in Catalysis is a package 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 various sources of environmental pollution are the theme of New and Future Developments in Catalysis.

This book – one of 7 volumes on new and future developments in catalysis – represents the latest developments in catalysis for remediation and environmental concerns. It is a comprehensive summary of past, current, and future research focusing on clean energy and clean catalytic processes. Catalysis for Remediation and Environmental Concerns lists all current environmentally friendly catalytic chemical processes used for environmental remediation and critically compares their economic viability. It offers in-depth coverage of all catalytic topics of current interest and outlines future challenges and research areas. It features 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.

Media reviews

"Chemists mostly in the US, but also Europe and Asia, explore such aspects as green synthesis of iron nanomaterials for oxidative catalysis of organic environmental pollutants, sorbents and photocatalytic materials for water remediation, the electrochemical promotion of catalysis for automotive post-treatment and air cleaning, catalysts and process design for air pollutants abatement, and asymmetric organocatalysis for constructing quaternary carbon stereogenic centers."
