This third edition includes significant new developments and case studies,with all the chapters updated by way of recent examples and relevant new literature. For students and for everyone who wants a digestible introduction to catalyst characterization.

Superbly organized and of great pedagogic value, "Spectroscopy in Catalysis" describes the most important modern analytical techniques used to investigate catalytic surfaces. These include electron, ion, and vibrational spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, temperature–programmed techniques, diffraction, and microscopy. With the focus on practical use, rather than theory, each chapter presents current applications to illustrate the type of information that the technique provides and evaluates its possibilities and limitations, allowing selection of the best catalyst and the correct technique to solve a given problem.

From reviews of the previous editions:

This is a truly valuable book...very useful for industrial practitioners who need to be aware of the type of information that can be obtained from modern surface spectroscopies...The book has a superb pedagogic value..." (Journal of Catalysis)

"...this is an excellent text on spectroscopies in catalysis and I highly recommend it for...introductory courses on heterogeneous catalysis or as a general introductory monograph." (Journal of the American Chemical Society)
