Green Chemical Engineering: An Introduction to Catalysis, Kinetics, and Chemical Processes

S. Suresh, S. Sundaramoorthy
August 10, 2018

While chemical products are useful in their own right—they address the demands and needs of the masses—they also drain our natural resources and generate unwanted pollution. Green Chemical Engineering: An Introduction to Catalysis, Kinetics, and Chemical Processes encourages minimized use of...

Clay Mineral Catalysis of Organic Reactions

Benny K.G. Theng
July 19, 2018

The book provides insight into the working of clays and clay minerals in speeding up a variety of organic reactions. Clay minerals are known to have a large propensity for taking up organic molecules and can catalyse numerous organic reactions due to fine particle size, extensive surface area,...
