One Line Description
Provides comprehensive coverage of the current literature, up-to-date overviews of all aspects of advanced materials in catalysis, and describes the skills needed for designing and synthesizing advanced materials

The book is written for scientists and engineers who research in advanced catalytic materials from diverse backgrounds across chemistry physics, materials science & engineering, environmental & chemical engineering, biotechnology. In addition, the book will be very useful to industrial sectors that employ state-of-the-art catalysis and bio-catalysis.

Advanced Catalytic Materials is written by a distinguished group of contributors and the purpose of the volume is to assemble recent advances in material syntheses and technologies in the design of novel and smart catalysts used in a wide range of applications. Catalysis covers diverse fields of chemistry and chemical engineering and plays a vital role in chemical processes. Nanomaterials in general play an important role in chemical processing as adsorbents, catalysts, catalyst supports, and membranes, and form the basis of cutting-edge technology because of their unique structural and surface properties.
The design of materials with specific functional and effective properties is of great interest and enormous potential in their application in biomedical sciences and drug delivery. This remarkable growth in synthetic methods for new advanced materials during the last decade, has led to the development of new approaches based on the state-of-the-art nanotechnology, and is the impetus for the current volume.
The book is divided into three parts: Nanocatalysts: Architecture and Design; Organic and Inorganic Catalytic Transformations; and Functional Catalysis: Fundamentals and Applications. Specifically, the chapters discuss the following subjects:
• Environmental applications of multifunctional nanocomposite catalytic materials
• Transformation of nanostructured functional precursors using soft chemistry
• Graphenes in heterogeneous catalysis
• Gold nanoparticles-graphene composites material for catalytic application
• Hydrogen generation from chemical hydrides
• Ring-opening polymerization of poly(lactic acid)
• Catalytic performance of metal alkoxides
• Cycloaddition of CO2 and epoxides over reusable solid catalysts
• Biomass-derived fine chemicals using catalytic metal bio-composites
• Homoleptic metal carbonyls in organic transformation
• Zeolites: smart materials for novel, efficient, and versatile catalysis
• Optimizing zeolitic catalysis for environmental remediation
