Handbook of Advanced Methods and Processes in Oxidation Catalysis.

From Laboratory to Industry

Edited by: Daniel Duprez (University of Poitiers, France), Fabrizio Cavani (University of Bologna, Italy)
The authors are Daniel Duprez (University of Poitiers IC2MP, France) and Fabrizio Cavani (University of Bologna, Italy). Jacques Barbier Jr., Thomas Belin, Patrick Magnoux Jerome Mijoin, Christophe Coutanceau and Steve Baranton researchers, professors and Lecturer at the IC2MP also involved in the work.
This book offers a comprehensive overview of the most recent developments in both total oxidation and combustion and also in selective oxidation. For each topic, fundamental aspects are paralleled with industrial applications. The book covers oxidation catalysis, one of the major areas of industrial chemistry, outlining recent achievements, current challenges and future opportunities. One distinguishing feature of the book is the selection of arguments which are emblematic of current trends in the chemical industry, such as miniaturization, use of alternative, greener oxidants, and innovative systems for pollutant abatement. Topics outlined are described in terms of both catalyst and reaction chemistry, and also reactor and process technology.
