Filling a gap in the current literature, this comprehensive reference presents all important catalyst classes, including metal oxides, polyoxometalates, and zeolites. Readers will find here everything they need to know -- from structure design to characterization, and from immobilization to industrial processes. A true must-have for anyone working in this key technology.
