Description

Highlighting sustainable catalytic processes in synthetic organic chemistry, this useful guide places special emphasis on catalytic reactions carried out at room temperature. It describes the fundamentals, summarizes key advances, and covers applications in the field of organic synthesis, biomass conversion, and pollution control. Throughout, the latest research from various disciplines is combined, such as homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, biocatalysis, and photocatalysis. The book concludes with a chapter on future trends and energy challenges for the latter half of the 21st century and two case studies. With its multidisciplinary approach this is an essential reference for academic and industrial researchers in catalysis science aiming to design more sustainable and energy-efficient processes.

Author Biography

Rafael Luque is Ramon y Cajal Fellow at the University of Cordoba (UCO) in Spain. He studied chemistry at UCO and obtained his PhD in 2005. He then spent a postdoctoral placement in the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence at the University of York, UK, with Prof. James Clark (2005-2008). He was also appointed as visiting professor and distinguished engineering fellow of the Departament of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2013. Currently, he is visiting professor from the Xiamen University (China) and the Universidade Federal de Pelotas (Brazil). Prof. Luque has published over 260 research articles, filed 3 patent applications, and edited 8 books. His research is focused on (nano)materials science, heterogeneous (nano)catalysis, microwave and flow chemistry, biofuels and green chemical methods in synthetic organic chemistry. Frank Leung-Yuk Lam is a visiting assistant professor at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) since 2012. He received his PhD at the HKUST in 2005 and then worked as a postdoctoral researcher in both University of Hong Kong and the HKUST. He has been a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering in the Technion Israel Institute of Technology (TIIT) in Israel, doing research on functional materials for environment and teaching about environmental engineering. His research is focused on separation, air pollution control and wastewater treatment through adsorption and heterogeneous catalysis.
