Catalysis literature can be difficult to read if there is not a sufficient understanding of the underlying connections between the chemical, materials and engineering aspects of catalysis. As a result, many students lack the depth of knowledge to easily read about the topic.Introduction to Heterogeneous Catalysis solves this issue by presenting not only the basic concepts of catalysis but also, right from the beginning, integrating the chemical, materials and engineering aspects of catalysis in examples taken directly from industry.Aimed at master's and PhD students with a limited chemistry background, this book provides a thorough introduction to the principles behind catalysis that will enable readers to understand the underlying concepts of the topic and also catalysis literature.
