The first comprehensive survey of the principles and applications of heterogeneous catalysis! Starting with the invention of D�bereiner′s tinder box and reaching importance with Haber′s development of ammonia synthesis, heterogeneous catalysis has become a multi-billion dollar business. Simultaneously, literature on heterogeneous catalysis has become increasingly widespread and difficult to follow. This handbook collects the available knowledge on heterogeneous catalysis and provides the reader with easy-to-find yet comprehensive information. With contributions from more than 200 leading experts from all over the world it covers all aspects of the subject, from physico-chemical foundations to large-scale industrial applications. With its highly topical contributions, the straightforward presentation of the material and its comprehensive coverage, this handbook sets new standards. Saving you the time for laborious searches for information, it is an indispensable tool for every scientist working in heterogeneous catalysis.
