Product description

The book gives a comprehensive up-to-date summary of the existing information on the structural/electronic properties, chemistry and catalytic properties of vanadium and molybdenum containing catalysts. It discusses the importance of nanoscience for the controlled synthesis of catalysts with functional properties and introduces the necessary background regarding surface properties and preparation techniques, leading from a textbook level to the current state of knowledge. Then follows an extensive survey and analysis of the existing open and patent literature - an essential knowledge source for the development of the new generation of partial oxidation catalysts. Important examples from current research on partial oxidation reactions are reviewed from experts in the field. The next chapter discusses the importance of 2- and 3-dimensional model systems for a fundamental understanding of the structure of transition metal oxide catalysts and its correlation to reactivity. Finally, an outlook on research opportunities within the area of partial oxidation reactions is presented.

Review quote

"The research described here is leading to new discoveries in the field of surface morphology at atomic resolution level." -- Andreas Martin Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2012; 51, 2 "The book can be strongly recommended for every scientist who isconcerned with heterogeneous catalytic selective oxidations." -- Andreas Martin Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2012; 51, 2 "...the book provides an excellent selection of the latest insights and perspectives about the course of chemical reactions..." -- Andreas Martin Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2012; 51, 2 "...the contents list affords reasonably easy access to the various topics, and the short preface helps in understanding the organization of the book." -- Andreas Martin Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2012; 51, 2

Back cover copy

The book gives a comprehensive summary of the existing information on the structural/electronic properties, chemistry and catalytic properties of vanadium and molybdenum containing catalysts. As at least one of these two elements is essential to most partial oxidation catalysts the book is of great interest to advanced students of catalysis and researchers both in academia and industry. Despite major developments in the field, the last book with a similar scope was published in 1989 and therefore a new book is overdue. The book benefits largely from the fact that the subject is a major research focus at the Department of Inorganic Chemistry amongst other departments at the Fritz Haber Institute, a world leading institution for catalysis research, ensuring an up-to-date treatise. Such an integrated approach including the relation of in situ spectroscopic results from real catalysts to those of model catalytic systems has not been accomplished before. The introductory chapter discusses the importance of nanoscience for the controlled synthesis of catalysts with functional properties. The following two chapters introduce the necessary background regarding surface properties and preparation techniques, leading from a textbook level to the current state of knowledge. The following chapter starts with an extensive survey and analysis of the existing open and patent literature, which is an essential knowledge source for the development of the new generation of partial oxidation catalysts and will be of particular value to those developing new partial oxidation catalysts. In the remaining subchapters, important examples from current research on partial oxidation reactions are reviewed from experts in the field. The next chapter discusses the importance of 2- and 3-dimensional model systems for a fundamental understanding of the structure of transition metal oxide catalysts and its correlation to reactivity. These results are related to those of the real catalytic systems. The last chapter gives an outlook on research opportunities within the area of partial oxidation reactions.
