This book introduces major catalytic processes including products from the petroleum, chemical, environmental and alternative energy industries. It provides an easy to read description of the fundamentals of catalysis and some of the major catalytic industrial processes used today. It offers a rationale for process designs based on kinetics and thermodynamics. It offers alternative energy topics that include the hydrogen economy, fuels cells, bio catalytic (enzymes) production of ethanol fuel from corn and biodiesel from vegetable oils. Problem sets are included with answers available to faculty who use the book.Über den Autor:
