First Comprehensive Book Covering All Aspects of Carbon Nanotubes and Nanofibers in Catalysis

Published on March 27, 2009 at 8:03 AM

Research and Markets has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Carbon Materials for Catalysis" to their offering.

This is the first comprehensive book covering all aspects of the use of carbonaceous materials in heterogeneous catalysis. It covers the preparation and characterization of carbon supports and carbon-supported catalysts; carbon surface chemistry in catalysis; the description of catalytic, photo-catalytic, or electro-catalytic reactions, including the development of new carbon materials such as carbon xerogels, aerogels, or carbon nanotubes; and new carbon-based materials in catalytic or adsorption processes. This is a premier reference for carbon, inorganic, and physical chemists, materials scientists and engineers, chemical engineers, and others.

Key Topics Covered:

  • Physico-chemical properties of carbon materials: a brief overview (Ljubisa R. Radovic)
  • Surface chemistry of carbon materials (Teresa J. Bandosz).
  • Molecular Simulations applied to adsorption on and reaction with carbon (Zhonghua (John) Zhu).
  • Carbon as catalyst support (Francisco Rodrguez-Reinoso and Antonio Sepúlveda-Escribano).
  • Preparation of carbon-supported metal catalysts (Johannes H. Bitter and Krijn P. de Jong).
  • Carbon as catalyst (Jos‚ Luis Figueiredo and Manuel Fernando R. Pereira).
  • Catalytic properties of nitrogen-containing carbons (Hanns-Peter Boehm).
  • Carbon anchored metal complex catalysts (Cristina Freire and Ana Rosa Silva).
  • Carbon nanotubes and nanofibers in catalysis (Philippe Serp).
  • Carbon gels in catalysis (Carlos Moreno-Castilla).
  • Carbon monoliths in catalysis (Karen M. de Lathouder, Edwin Crezee, Freek Kapteijn and Jacob A. Moulijn).
  • Carbon materials as supports for fuel cells electrocatalysts (Frédéric Maillard, Pavel A. Simonov and Elena R. Savinova).
  • Carbon materials in photocatalysis (Joaquim Lus Faria and Wendong Wang).
  • Carbon-based sensors (Jun Li).
  • Carbon Supported Catalysts for the Chemical Industry (Venu Arunajatesan, Baoshu Chen, Konrad Möbus, Daniel J. Ostgard, Thomas Tacke and Dorit Wolf).
