Catalysts are required for a variety of applications. Industrialists and academics are increasingly challenged to find cost effective and environmentally benign catalysts to use. This volume looks at modern approaches to catalysis and critically reviews the extensive literature on areas such as catalysts derived from waste materials, determining the pore structure of activated carbon by nitrogen gas adsorption and a new tool to explore catalytic reaction mechanisms - the catalytic shock tube. With an emphasis on interdisciplinary content, this book is aimed at catalytic science and engineering research communities.
