Explore the state-of-the-art in heterogeneous catalysis
In Heterogeneous Catalysis for Sustainable Energy, a team of distinguished researchers delivers a comprehensive and cutting-edge treatment of recent advancements in energy-related catalytic reactions and processes in the field of heterogeneous catalysis. The book includes extensive coverage of the hydrogen economy, methane activation, methanol-to-hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide conversion, and biomass conversion methane activation.
The authors explore different aspects of the technology, like reaction mechanisms, catalyst synthesis, and the commercial status of the reactions. The book also includes:
* A thorough introduction to the hydrogen economy, including hydrogen production, the reforming of oxygen-containing chemicals, and advances in Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis
* Comprehensive explorations of methane activation, including steam and dry reforming of methane and methane activation over zeolite catalysts
* Practical discussions of alkane activation, including cracking of hydrocarbons to light olefins and catalytic dehydrogenation of light alkanes
In-depth examinations of zeolite catalysis and carbon dioxide as C1 building block
Perfect for catalytic, physical, and surface chemists, Heterogeneous Catalysis for Sustainable Energy also belongs in the libraries of materials scientists with an interest in energy-related reactions and processes in the field of heterogeneous catalysis.
