Book Description

April 17, 2007 3527314385 978-3527314386 1
Catalysis from abzymes to zeolite: the successful encyclopedia now in its third, updated and enlarged edition with 50% more content in three volumes!
Designed as a first-stop source for chemists, biochemists, physicists, and engineers whose permanent or occasional interest lies in catalysis, the encyclopedia is at once comprehensive, succinct and easy to use. More than 200 top scientists from all over the world have contributed a total of over 8000 entries with 3300 cross references - providing important information, 20,000 citations and numerous process schemes on all aspects of bio-, heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, as well as on analytical methods and techniques, and industrial processes.
The international significance of this work is underlined by the fact that the keywords are also given in German and French.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"In summary, this work offers exactly what its subtitle promises: a very precise encyclopedia of catalysis. Off all the topics in the field of catalysis that I have looked for in this book, not one has been missing."

Rainer St?rmer, BASF AG, Ludwigshafen
Angewandte Chemie + IE 11/04

"In summary, I would highly recommend "Catalysis from A to Z" for all scientists and engineers whose work is related to the field of catalysis. Specifically, if you are from an interdisciplinary related area and naturally not too familiar with all vocabulary used in the field, you will find it particulary useful to have this encyclopedia on your bookshelf."

J?rg Libuda, Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Berlin
ChemPhysChem 3/04

"Mit "Catalysis from A to Z" wird dem Katalytiker ein herausragendes Lexikon an die Hand gegeben."

Chemie-Online

"...this book is a must for all libraries in institutes with research groups active in catalysis. Indeed this reference work will be of value to all senior academic and industrial scientists with an interest in one or more of the (converging) areas of catalysis."

Stanley M. Roberts, University of Liverpool (UK)
ChemBioChem 6/2004


"The content is well-written, suitable for both undergraduates and researchers."

E-Streams Vol. 7, No. 5


"Surprisingly comprehensive, this 824-page work is essentially a dictionary - not an encyclopedia-giving advanced discussion of terms drawn from all aspects of catalysis."

Choice, June 2004, Vol. 41 No. 10

"...approximately 4600 catalytic or catalysis-related terms are defined by 190 authors and coauthors who are all experts in their respective areas."

Journal of the American Chemical Society, June 9, 2004
