Editorial Reviews

Review

“Everything about this book is reader-friendly, from the well-designed figures and the use of color to the complete titles in the references. The writing is crisp and engaging, with morsels of historical facts and details scattered throughout the text.” (Journal of Chemical Education, February 2010)

"I read this book with great pleasure. It is well worth the affordable price … .Very readable and informative, with some interspersed historic annotations, which make certain developments easier to understand." (ChemSusChem, December 2008)

"The author's highly readable and concise style results in a comprehensive treatment of catalysis that will make of this book a lasting reference for chemistry scholars at all levels." (Advanced Synthesis and Catalysis, September 2008)

"This book will help graduate students and pharmaceutical scientists and technologists enhance their understanding of green-chemistry applications and their implications for the environment.  It is a useful resource for professionals seeking synthetic methods that are efficient and environmentally benign." (Pharmaceutical Technology Magazine, September 2, 2008)

"This book is informative and fascinating, and will be a solid work for catalysis course or a worthwhile investment for an interested student." (CHOICE, September 2008)

One of those timely books that does not leave you empty-handed … The more I read the book the more interested and surprised I was. (Chemistry World, July 2008)

From the Back Cover

This introductory textbook covers all aspects of catalysis. It also bridges computational methods, industrial applications and green chemistry, with over 700 references. The author, a renowned researcher in catalysis, teaches scientific writing as well as chemistry. This makes him the ideal person to write such a textbook. The effectiveness of his practical approach has been well proven in courses for undergraduates and graduates (in 2007 he was voted "lecturer of the year" by the chemistry students).
Following an introduction to green chemistry and the basics of catalysis, the book covers biocatalysis, homogeneous catalysis and heterogeneous catalysis, as well as computer applications in catalysis research.
Each chapter also features integrated exercises that help students prepare for their exams.

Format: Hardcover
The textbook of Rothenberg is a blessing to anyone who teaches or studies catalysis. It emphasizes two important and previously neglected topics in textbooks on catalysis, namely the "green" aspects of this key element of chemistry; and the emerging role of computational chemistry in the rational design and in the mechanistic understanding of catalytic processes (Chapter 6). The textbook leads the scholar gradually from basic concepts of green chemistry, through basic concepts in catalysis and surface science, emphasizes - and rightly so - heterogeneous processes, and provides ample examples from currently practiced industrial catalytic processes. Yet another unique feature of the book is its unified vision of the whole field in its most general definition: Experiments and theory, biocatalytic processes and classical catalytic processes, all emerge as one comprehensive field.
The full referencing, which includes also the titles of the papers, is a blessing, and serves as an invaluable additional source of information. The web site which accompanies the book ([...]) is a treasure-place by itself with plenty of useful features, such as lecture slides which accompany each chapter, and plenty of exercises.
This is a "must" book for teachers and for anyone who wishes to get a modern overview of catalysis.

Format: Hardcover
Catalysis, by Gadi Rothenberg, is a book I strongly recommend to people who are teaching graduate level courses as well as research scientists who are interested in expanding their knowledge in any aspect of catalysis. It is written in such a manner as to ease the reader into complex areas of research by clarifying and revisiting fundamentals of the topics discussed. It is an ideal book for both upper undergraduate education as well as early graduate level courses. It also has questions at the back of every chapter. This book is written with the concept of Green Chemistry in mind, which makes it a desirable book to have as an inspiration for modern day demands in research. A notable and unique strength of this book resides in its ability to integrate various aspects of catalysis such as: homogeneous, heterogeneous, inorganic, organic, bioorganic, biochemical and even the involvement of computational applications, in an effective manner. The figures and diagrams used along with the analogies employed in the description make this book a true pleasure to read. The accompanying website is also a great tool to aid in lecturing as well as for direct links to the scientific literature.

Format: Hardcover
A concise and readable book ideal for all, from tutors and students at once, covering the broad spectrum of basic catalysis chiefly from the view of a blessed speaker and tutor. Prof. Rothenberg describes catalysis in a manner easily understood to a newcomer to the field, in a way that is both clear from the theoretical point of view but also practical and well explained using real life examples and links to articles and DOI's,for the first time in a book.... a blessed idea aiming to help the reader to enjoy the reading. The real strength of the textbook is in the clarity of explanation of catalysis in all aspects - a very multifaceted subject - from a chemical and physical viewpoint. Prof.Rothenberg traverses the field of catalysis and biocatalysis from the fundamentals to industrial processes, illuminating the key concepts and experimental methods on the way.
In conclusion, this is a brilliant and comprehensive account of basic catalysis and biocatalysis that will be of great help for those trying to keep students in the Chemistry arena. As a veteran Chemistry teacher, I can say that it is the only textbook that combines all the catalysis related disciplines in a clear manner.

I would like very much to see this kind of books for General Chemistry courses.

Format: Hardcover
This is an outstanding book! Written by one of Europe's leading chemists. It covers all of the fields of catalysis (homogeneous, heterogeneous and enzymatic) as well as emerging fields of green chemistry, computational chemistry, topology and library generation. It has a very cogent chapter on kinetics. The book is written with an enthusiastic writing style and healthy sense of humor; it is clear, consise(279 pp.), creative, well-referenced and filled with fantastic illustrations. I plan to use this affordable, up-to-date book as a main text for an introductory graduate/advanced undergraduate level course in catalysis. This is also a fantastic book for general reading by any chemist and chemical engineer who is looking to update and broaden his and her knowledge of catalysis.

Also, check out the brilliant web-site [...] that the author maintains for this book. It has slides for lectures, answers to some of the problems and provides links to all available references. This web-site is extremely well done and useful!

I would highly recommend this text for anyone interested in learning about catalysis and its use in reducing the waste byproducts from the source. The text covers catalysis from the fundamentals to the more advanced and current topics. The writing is clear, easy to understand for any one with a basic background in chemistry and calculus. There are many illustrations in the text to explain the function of catalyst in the kinetics of chemical reactions. The text explains in details the characteristics and applications of homongeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, and biocatalysis as well as computer applications in catalysis research.
