9780471457138: Fundamentals of Industrial Catalytic Processes

Catalysis is central to the chemical industry, as it is directly or involved in the production of almost all useful chemical products. In this book the authors, present the definitive account of industrial catalytic processes. Throughout Fundamentals of Industrial Catalytic Processes the information is illustrated with many case studies and problems. This book is valuable to anyone wanting a clear account of industrial catalytic processes, but is particularly useful to industrial and academic chemists and engineers and graduate working on catalysis. This book also:

  • Covers fundamentals of catalytic processes, including chemistry, catalyst preparation, properties and reaction engineering.
  • Addresses heterogeneous catalytic processes employed by industry.
  • Provides detailed data on existing catalysts and catalytic reactions, process design and chemical engineering.
  • Covers catalysts used in fuel cells.

From the Back Cover:

THE DEFINITIVE ACCOUNT OF INDUSTRIAL CATALYTIC PROCESSES

Fundamentals of Industrial Catalytic Processes, Second Edition is a comprehensive combination handbook and textbook that presents the definitive, up-to-date account of important catalyst, reactor, and process technologies for important catalytic processes practiced in a wide range of industries, including the chemical, petroleum, electric utility, food, transportation, and emission-control industries. Integrating science fundamentals necessary to the design and practice of these processes, the book addresses important basic principles of heterogeneous, homogenous, enzymatic, and polymer catalysis.

This book consists of two sections treating fundamentals and practice. The first section addresses basic principles underlying the science of catalytic reactions; catalyst materials, properties, preparation, and characterization; reaction engineering; and catalyst deactivation. The second section provides substantial data on process chemistries, reaction kinetics and mechanisms, catalyst chemistry/design, reactor/process design, and catalyst deactivation for important catalytic processes practiced commercially.

Other features include:

  • Over 150 tables and 350 figures (including a color inset) providing detailed activity/rate data; descriptions of catalysts, materials, reactors, and experimental/instrumental methods; reaction networks and mechanistic sequences; comparisons of catalyst and process technologies; summaries of catalyst and chemical production; reactor schematics and process flow diagrams; and photos of process catalysts, equipment, and plants
  • Stoichiometric equations, enthalpies, rate and equilibrium constants, and operating conditions for important catalytic reactions, as well as important equations for catalyst and reactor design
  • End-of-chapter exercises, including thought-provoking questions and practical design problems; example calculations in most chapters
  • Case studies with detailed descriptions of reaction chemistry and of catalyst, reactor, and process technologies for more than thirty of the most important commercial processes
  • Descriptions of the chemistry, composition, and structure of commercial catalysts and enzymes; lists of catalyst suppliers and a chapter on catalysts used in fuel cells
  • Authors' perspectives and projections (based on more than sixty-five years of combined experience) regarding anticipated future developments of catalyst, reactor, and process technologies
  • A glossary of terms and a table of nomenclature to facilitate reader comprehension

Containing accessible, everyday-useful information on the fundamentals and practice of catalysis, Fundamentals of Industrial Catalytic Processes, Second Edition is an essential resource for students, faculty, researchers, scientists, engineers, and managers working with catalysts or catalytic processes.

About the Author:

CALVIN H. BARTHOLOMEW, Professor of Chemical Engineering and Head of the Catalysis Laboratory at Brigham Young University, is author or coauthor of more than 140 papers/reviews and four books and has consulted with more than fifty companies on issues relating to catalysis, air pollution, and combustion. Active in several scientific societies, he was the 1990 recipient of the Utah ACS Award, president of the California Catalysis Society, a cofounder of the Western States Catalysis Club, and a recipient of the Pope Professorship in Chemical Engineering at BYU (1995-2000).

ROBERT J. FARRAUTO, Research Fellow with Engelhard Corporation, is involved in all aspects of catalysis for the environmental, chemical, and petroleum industries. Dr. Farrauto is the author of seventy papers and recipient of fifty U.S. patents and served as North and South American editor of Applied Catalysis B: Environmental from 1995-2002. He is the recipient of the International Precious Metal Institute Henry Albert Award for excellence in precious metal catalysis (2000) and the Canadian Catalysis Society Award for excellence in catalysis (1999). He is currently an adjunct professor at Columbia University, New York City, in the Department of Earth and Environmental Engineering.
