Homogeneous Catalysts Activity - Stability - Deactivation

by John C. Chadwick, Rob Duchateau, Zoraida Freixa, P. W. N. M. van Leeuwen

Homogeneous Catalysts Activity - Stability - Deactivation Synopsis

This first book to illuminate this important aspect of chemical synthesis improves the lifetime of catalysts, thus reducing material and saving energy, costs and waste. The international panel of expert authors describes the studies that have been conducted concerning the way homogeneous catalysts decompose, and the differences between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts. The result is a ready reference for organic, catalytic, polymer and complex chemists, as well as those working in industry and with/on organometallics.

Homogeneous Catalysts Activity - Stability - Deactivation Press Reviews

The text is well-arranged thorough the monograph. The clear style makes it easy to read, further supported by the very informative formulas and figures. It is highly recommended for experts and novices and should serve as a primary source of valuable information not only for academics but also for industrial researchers. This very particular book should be an essential addition to any meaningful institutional library collection. (Catal Lett, 1 October 2013) This volume provides an up to date, well-informed appraisal of issues concerning activity and stability of homogeneous transition metal catalysts. It will prove to be a valuable source of information for researchers working in this field, from graduate students and academics to process chemists in industry. (Chemistry World, 2012)

About John C. Chadwick, Rob Duchateau, Zoraida Freixa, P. W. N. M. van Leeuwen

Piet van Leeuwen is group leader in the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia, Tarragona, Spain, since 2004 and emeritus professor of homogeneous catalysis at the University of Amsterdam. Until 1994 he headed a research group at Shell Research in Amsterdam studying many aspects of homogeneous catalysis. He coauthored 300 publications, 30 patents, many book chapters, is author of the book Homogeneous catalysis: Understanding the art . In 2005 he won the Holleman Prize (for organic chemists), granted only every five years by the Royal Academy, and obtained a Marie Curie Chair of Excellence in Tarragona. John Chadwick is employed by LyondellBasell Industries and since 2001 has ...
