There is an increasing challenge for chemical industry and research institutions to find cost-efficient and environmentally sound methods of converting natural resources into fuels, chemicals and energy. Catalysts are essential to these processes and the "Catalysis Specialist Periodical Report" series aims to highlight major developments in this area. This volume provides systematic and detailed reviews of topics aimed at scientists and engineers in the catalysis field. The coverage includes all major areas of heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, and also specific applications of catalysis such as NOx control, kinetics and experimental techniques such as microcalorimetry. Each chapter is compiled by a specialist within the field, and provides a summary of the recent literature. This volume aims to be of interest to all those in academia and industry who need an up-to-date critical analysis and summary of catalysis research and applications.

Table of Contents

About the Author

Professor Spivey is the McLaurin Shivers Professor of Chemical Engineering at Louisiana State University and Director of the DOE Energy Frontier Research Center at LSU. Professor Spivey's research interests include the application of the principles of heterogeneous catalysis to catalytic combustion, control of sulfur and nitrogen oxides from combustion processes, acid/base catalysis (e.g., for condensation reactions), hydrocarbon synthesis, and the study of catalyst deactivation.
