Introduction to Catalysis and Industrial Catalytic Processes

Hardback by Robert J. Farrauto, Lucas Dorazio, C. H. Bartholomew

Introduces major catalytic processes including products from the petroleum, chemical, environmental and alternative energy industries

  • Provides an easy to read description of the fundamentals of catalysis and some of the major catalytic industrial processes used today
  • Offers a rationale for process designs based on kinetics and thermodynamics
  • Alternative energy topics include the hydrogen economy, fuels cells, bio catalytic (enzymes) production of ethanol fuel from corn and biodiesel from vegetable oils
  • Problem sets of included with answers available to faculty who use the book

"In less than 300 pages, it serves as an excellent introduction to these subjects whether for advanced students or those seeking to learn more about these subjects on their own time...Particularly useful are the succinct summaries throughout the book...excellent detail in the table of contents, a detailed index, key references at the end of each chapter, and challenging classroom questions..."
