Oxygen in Catalysis

By Adam Bielanski, Jerzy Haber Copyright 1991

    A description of catalytic systems commonly used as model systems in the laboratory and as industrial catalysts in large-scale operations, and a discussion of the mechanisms operating in these reactions. Attempts to describe the elementary steps by quantum chemical methods are also shown, as are rec
