Adopting a unique approach, this textbook takes readers on a journey from catalyst development to production and application, with regard to space (from reactor to molecular level) and time (historical context). The result is a novel introduction to the concepts and practice of heterogeneous catalysis.

The distinguished author describes the underlying principles of catalysis as well as the most important heterogeneous–catalyzed processes, linking theory and practice by providing first–hand information from chemical companies. The reactions covered are subdivided into three parts, namely cutting molecules into smaller entities, modifying molecules to create new ones, and pasting molecules into larger ones. A chapter on the effect of changing feedstocks and new catalysts for sustainable energy storage completes the book.

Beautiful color photographs and textboxes give important background information, while a problem and solution section helps students to expand their knowledge. Finally, specially designed educational videos are accessible on the Wiley website and embedded in the enhanced e–book.

A descriptive textbook for master and PhD students in chemistry, as well as researchers in academia and industry working in the field of catalysis and chemical engineering.
