With contributions from experts in supported metal catalysis, from both the industry and academia, this book presents the recent developments in characterization and application of supported metals in heterogeneous catalysis. In addition to a thorough and updated coverage of the traditional aspects of heterogeneous catalysis such as preparation, characterization and use in well-established technologies such as Naphtha reforming, the book also includes emerging areas where supported metal catalysis will make significant contributions in future developments, such as hydrogen production and fine chemicals synthesis.
