Provides a complete and accessible A to Z collection of information on catalysis
This updated and enlarged must-have edition of a classic book on catalysis explains the important terms of all aspects of the subject - including biocatalysis, homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis - as well as the terms associated with it. It also looks at related topics like spectroscopy or analytical methods. Featuring 20% more content than the previous edition, it comprehensively covers the topic in a clear and concise manner, and includes abbreviations, brief biographic entries of important scientists who have worked in catalysis, trade names, important catalytic processes, named reactions, reactions, and other important keywords in the general field of catalysis.
Written by more than 200 top scientists and with more than 15,000 entries on all aspects of catalysis, Catalysis from A to Z: A Concise Encyclopedia, 5th Edition is filled with figures, tables, cross-references, and references. It covers acids, ligands, catalytic reactions in organic synthesis, kinetics and thermodynamics of catalytic reactions, and catalyst labeling. The book also looks at theoretical backgrounds of catalytic reactions, industrial catalytic processes, autoclaves, colloids, nanomaterials, spectroscopically methods for catalyst analysis, and more.

Catalysis, declare the editors, occurs always and everywhere, is not a separate scientific discipline of limited scope, but rather a cross-linking science that embraces all chemistry and biology indeed even listeners to Mozart experience catalysis, they claim, though they do not include him in the encyclopedia. Some 165 contributors explain approximately 3,000 terms relating to catalysis in all the fields where it appears as a reference for scholars, teachers, chemists, biological scientists, physicists, and others within and beyond the academic realm. A sampling of topics turns up burst kinetics, covalent catalysis, horse liver alcohol dehydrogenase, and non-aqueous ionic liquids. Each term is translated into French and German. The cross-referencing is extensive, and most entries include bibliographic reference.
