  • Book

  • August 2019
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
  • ID: 4759442

Cerium Oxide (CeO2): Synthesis, Properties and Applications provides an updated and comprehensive account of the research in the field of cerium oxide based materials. The book is divided into three main blocks that deal with its properties, synthesis and applications. Special attention is devoted to the growing number of applications of ceria based materials, including their usage in industrial and environmental catalysis and photocatalysis, energy production and storage, sensors, cosmetics, radioprotection, glass technology, pigments, stainless steel and toxicology. A brief historical introduction gives users background, and a final chapter addresses future perspectives and outlooks to stimulate future research.

The book is intended for a wide audience, including students, academics and industrial researchers working in materials science, chemistry and physics.

Please Note: This is an On Demand product, delivery may take up to 11 working days after payment has been received.

Salvatore Scire Associate Professor, Department of Chemical Sciences, Catania University, Italy. Salvatore Scir� was born in 1960 at Catania (Italy) and obtained his degree in Chemistry with Laude in 1984 at the University of Catania and then the PhD in Industrial Chemistry in 1989. Now he is Associate Professor of Industrial Chemistry at the Department of Chemical Sciences of Catania University. His research activity is mainly focused on heterogeneous catalysis with special interest devoted to the study of oxide-supported mono and bimetallic catalysts and more recently to the application of photocatalysis to the environment protection and the energy production. He is referee for leading journals devoted to catalysis and material science and guest editor of some special issues in international journals. He collaborated with petrochemical and microelectronic industries and with other scientists all over the world. His research activity is documented by about 100 papers in international journals and books, 1 patent and over 110 contributions in scientific meetings. Leonardo Palmisano Professor of Chemistry, Department of Engineering, Universita di Palermo, Sicily, Italy. Leonardo Palmisano was born in Termini Imerese, Italy, in 1950. He obtained his B.Sc. degree in Chemistry cum laude in
1973 from the University of Palermo. He was a full professor of Chemistry in the Department of Engineering, University of
Palermo, since 2000, and although he has now retired, he continues to carry out research. His scientific work mainly focuses
on heterogeneous photocatalysis, such as preparation, characterization of many bulk and surface techniques, and testing
of various types of bare and doped polycrystalline photocatalysts. He has collaborated with many scientists worldwide,
producing joint papers in international journals (~350), many scientific and didactical books, and five patents. He is editorin-
chief of the Journal of Photocatalysis and a member of the editorial boards of European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry,
Current Organic Chemistry, International Journal of Photoenergy, Journal of Chemistry, and Journal of Membrane Science
& Technology.
