This book is the first emphasizing industrial aspects of catalysis and also particularly well suited to studying on one's own. It is dedicated to both, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis and in this second edition, biocatalysis, electrocatalysis, photocatalysis and asymmetric catalysis are also included. The book aids practically oriented readers in becoming familiar with the processes of catalyst development and testing. It deals with aspects of test planning, optimization and reactor modeling and simulation with the easy-to-learn PC program POLYMATH. Well over 100 exercises help to test and consolidate the gained knowledge.
