Catalysts Books

  • Environmental Catalysis over Gold-Based Materials

    Being an inert noble metal, gold was largely overlooked as a catalyst until the mid 1980's when its nano-form was used in the first catalytic aldol reaction. Today gold has the potential for many new catalytic applications and is being investigated at a higher rate than ever before, prompting the need for an authoritative monograph on gold and its ...

  • Reduction, Modification and Valorisation of Sludge

    The adoption of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive requires sewage sludge to be subsequently treated and the Sewage Sludge Directive regulates the uses and properties of stabilised sludge for being either recycled or disposed. Both directives drive specific actions in two complementary ways. Reduction, Modification and Valorisation of ...

  • Tourism in Developing Countries

    The effect of tourism activity in developing countries has been a hotly debated topic for a number of decades. Opinions have fluctuated between the extremes of tourism as the catalyst for socio-economic development and tourism as the basis for neo-colonial exploitation and environmental and cultural decline. The contributions to this timely volume ...

  • State of Food and Agriculture 2005, (The) (En)

    Series: FAO Agriculture SeriesCan trade work for the poor? 'The State of Food and Agriculture 2005' examines the many ways trade and trade liberalization affect the poor and food-insecure. It is found that trade can be a catalyst for change, promoting conditions that enable the poor to raise their incomes and live longer, healthier and more ...

  • Hazards of Nitrogen and Catalyst Handling 2006 Edition – BP Process Safety Series

    Despite often being used as a 'safety' tool, nitrogen has proved that it can be as deadly as any other gas handled in the chemical and oil industries. This book aims to improve the understanding of the basic principles for the safe use of nitrogen. Split into two sections (Safe use of nitrogen and Safe handling of catalyst), Hazards of Nitrogen ...

  • Interfacial Applications in Environmental Engineering

    Describing novel methods and catalytic strategies to conserve and maintain air, water, and soil quality, researchers from a range of disciplines discuss the role of interface science in environmental remediation. They detail approaches to separate, reuse, recover, and treat potentially valuable materials using techniques in ion exchange and ...
