Catalysis is central to the chemical industry, as it is directly or involved in the production of almost all useful chemical products. In this book the authors, present the definitive account of industrial catalytic processes. Throughout Fundamentals of Industrial Catalytic Processes the information is illustrated with many case studies and problems. This book is valuable to anyone wanting a clear account of industrial catalytic processes, but is particularly useful to industrial and academic chemists and engineers and graduate working on catalysis. This book also:Covers fundamentals of catalytic processes, including chemistry, catalyst preparation, properties and reaction engineering.Addresses heterogeneous catalytic processes employed by industry.Provides detailed data on existing catalysts and catalytic reactions, process design and chemical engineering.Covers catalysts used in fuel cells.
