This text offers authoritative contributions from nearly 200 leaders in the field and new methods to enhance catalytic reactions. "Catalysis of Organic Reactions" covers approaches for designing, modifying, and altering catalysts for improved function, performance, and stability, procedures to reduce by-product formation, and cost-effective alternatives for the hydrogenation of organic compounds. Studying the phase preference, concentration, characteristics, and recoverability of recently developed and commercial catalysts, this is an excellent guide for chemical engineers; organic, medicinal, catalytic, physical, industrial, process, inorganic, and organometallic chemists and biochemists, and surface and environmental scientists.
