Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Researchers in catalysis and surface science will find this book to be an invaluable compendium of material on the preparation, characterization, and investigation of model catalyst systems, including single sites, supported and unsupported clusters, and single crystals of metal, metal alloys, and metal oxides. The connections made between heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis are particularly welcome. --Alexis T. Bell, Department of Chemical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley This is a superb collection of papers covering the latest developments in the use of models in fundamental catalytic science. It is a valuable addition to the libraries of those interested in the fundamentals of surface-catalyzed reactions. --D. Wayne Goodman, Department of Chemistry, Texas A&M University This is a comprehensive collection of the development of surface science over the last four decades. The book proves that the era of oversimplified model systems is over; the dynamics of materials and reactions is now accessible for rigorous experimental and theoretical study. The book is an invaluable, authoritative source of information both for the surface scientist and the catalysis practitioner. --Robert Schlögl, Department of Inorganic Chemistry, Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck-Society, Berlin, Germany This book is an important resource for anyone interested in the latest advances in catalysis. It contains contributions from leaders in the field, and addresses issues related to mechanism, characterization, and selectivity. A wide range of new catalyst design principles is introduced, within the context of chiral surfaces for enantioselective reactions, novel catalyst compositions and structures, well-defined, single site catalytic centers, and the influence of nanostructures on catalytic performance. --T. Don Tilley, Department of Chemistry, University of California, Berkeley

Synopsis:

In addition to concentrating on heterogeneous catalysis, this volume goes well beyond the simple model of the single crystal. The chapters explore how to build increasing complexity into catalyst models, such as building catalysts with controlled properties

Synopsis:

The book concentrates on heterogeneous catalysis, but extends well beyond the most obvious model system - the single crystal. The book builds upon increasing complexity into catalyst models - that is building catalysts with controlled properties that begin to rival the complexity found in industrial based heterogeneous catalysts. This includes the deposition of clusters on flat, thin oxide surfaces amenable to characterize by electron, ion and photon based spectroscopic techniques, the thermal decomposition of organometallic clusters on surfaces with well-defined stoichiometry, to the tethering of homogeneous catalysts to metal oxide surfaces (i.e. heterogenized homogeneous catalysis) and finally evolving to a supported structural and functional mimic of the ultimate catalyst, the enzyme.
