A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. The study of environmental interfaces and environmental catalysis is central to finding more effective solutions to air pollution and in understanding of how pollution impacts the natural environment. Encompassing concepts, techniques, and methods, Environmental Catalysis provides a mix of theory, computation, analysis, and synthesis to support the latest applications in biocatalysis, green chemistry, environmental remediation and our understanding of the interaction of pollutants with natural systems. The book focuses on several aspects of environmental catalysis. Surface catalysis of airborne particles - including ice, trace atmospheric gases, aerosolized soot nanoparticles, and mineral dust surfaces - as well as particles in contact with ground water and their role in surface adsorption, surface catalysis, hydrolysis, dissolution, precipitation, oxidation and ozone decomposition is explored. It continues by presenting catalysis as the key technology for treating emissions and reducing waste by-products. The authors review the theory behind catalytic converters and discuss the effectiveness of several catalysts, including zeolites and nanoparticles, in treating emissions, aromatic hydrocarbons, and chemical warfare agents. They also survey the use of biocatalysis in environmental remediation, and industrial processes, particularly in the production of transportation fuels, fine chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Then the authors explain how enzymes can remove chlorinated organics and metals and how microbes can metabolize toxic chemicals from groundwater. Lastly, they discuss the principles of green chemistry, including the use of environmentally benign solvents, biphasic catalysts, and other alternative solvents to recover and recycle catalysts based on heavy metals. With increasing ground water pollution, increasing particulates in the atmosphere, and the increasing need to remove pollutants from industrial and automotive sources, Environmental Catalysis addresses issues that will be instrumental in current and future environmental challenges we face.

The study of environmental interfaces and environmental catalysis is central to finding more effective solutions to air pollution and in understanding of how pollution impacts the natural environment. Encompassing concepts, techniques, and methods, Environmental Catalysis provides a mix of theory, computation, analysis, and synthesis to support the latest applications in biocatalysis, green chemistry, environmental remediation and our understanding of the interaction of pollutants with natural systems.

The book focuses on several aspects of environmental catalysis.

Review:

...an updated and relevant source of information.
-International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 86, 2006

This comprehensive book explores the subject from three distinct angles: natural systems (air, water, and soils); environmental remediation; and green chemical processing, and covers a wide breadth of subject areas from molecular surface science to nanotechnology and bioremediation. The book draws these areas together in a useful context and highlights the importance of the science and technology in the clean up and preservation of our environment.
-Louise Assem, Chemistry & Industry, November 6, 2006

The book is well organized, and the chapters are well laid out and well written, with their contents being relatively easy to follow...an excellent text for an undergraduate senior-level or graduate-level course...The text is also indispensable for anyone engaged in research in environmental catalysis because of the breadth of the topics covered...a fresh addition to the study of this topic.
-Israel E. Wachs, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 128, No. 25, 2006
