New and Future Developments in Catalysis is a series of 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.
New and Future Developments in Catalysis: Catalytic Biomass Conversion covers all the biomass sources and gives detailed and in-depth coverage of all current chemical/catalytic conversion processes of biomass into liquid hydrocarbons to be further used as a feedstock for the production of not only biofuels but a large array of chemicals. It offers an in-depth coverage of all catalytic topics of current interest and outlines the future challenges and research areas. It is a clear and visual description of all parameters and conditions enables the reader to draw conclusions for a particular case. It outlines the catalytic processes applicable to energy generation and design of green processes.
"Researchers in a number of biological sciences examine catalytic processes for turning biomass into fuel or other usable substance. The topics include metal catalysis for converting biomass into fine chemicals, synthetic biology for biomass conversion, hybrid plant systems for breeding and gene confinement in bioenergy crops, environmental benefits of integrated algal biorefineries for large-scale biomass conversion, and biofuels of the present and future."
