The updated fourth edition of this successful encyclopedia
contains 40% more high-quality content from over 300 international
experts in four volumes Comprehensive, succinct, and unrivaled, it
includes all the knowledge scientists need on homogeneous,
heterogeneous and biochemical catalysis in easy-to-use, compact
entries for over 11,000 keywords in alphabetical order.
"Catalysis from A to Z" explains briefly the important terms for
every aspect of catalysis, whether biocatalysis, homogeneous
catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, or such related topics as
spectroscopy or analytical methods. These also include
abbreviations, brief biographic entries of important scientists who
have worked in catalysis, trade names, important catalytic
processes, named reactions, and other important keywords in the
general field of catalysis.
To round this work off, many of the keywords are illustrated and
include German and French equivalent terms.
From reviews of previous editions:
"Everything you wanted to know about catalysis, from abzymes to
zeolites, is here."-Alan Warren, "The Catalyst"
"It is a very useful starting point for information on any
aspect of catalysis or biocatalysis, and is recommended for
collections serving chemists or chemical engineers, or students in
those fields."-Robert Michaelson, "American Ref Books Annual"
"In summary, this work offers exactly what its subtitle
promises: a very precise encyclopedia of catalysis. Off all the
topics in the field of catalysis that I have looked for in this
book, not one has been missing."-Rainer Sturmer, BASF AG,
Ludwigshafen, "Angew. Chem. Int. Ed."
"I would highly recommend "Catalysis from A to Z" for all
scientists and engineers whose work is related to the field of
catalysis. Specifically, if you are from an interdisciplinary
related area and naturally not too familiar with all vocabulary
used in the field, you will find it particulary useful to have this
encyclopedia on your bookshelf."-Jorg Libuda, Fritz-Haber-Institut
der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Berlin, "ChemPhysChem"
..".this book is a must for all libraries in institutes with
research groups active in catalysis. Indeed this reference work
will be of value to all senior academic and industrial scientists
with an interest in one or more of the (converging) areas of
catalysis."-Stanley M. Roberts, University of Liverpool,
