Catalysis and Surface Characterisation documents the latest research in the field within the UK and EC and focuses mainly on spectroscopic methods, although other techniques are included. The book reports many novel investigations and as such represents the state-of-the-art in catalyst characterisation. In the past three decades heterogeneous catalysis has developed from methodology largely relying upon trial and error into a science embracing diverse aspects of chemistry and physics. Central to this progress have been the advances in spectroscopic and other techniques, which have led to a better understanding of surfaces. Industrial applications have provided the major impetus for the improved understanding of catalysts that has resulted from surface characterisation; thus most of the catalysts described in this book are of current industrial importance. Catalysis and Surface Characterisation brings together in a single volume a broad cross section of the current activity in the field and is the first book to be published on the subject in the UK for some years. It is a must for researchers in both industry and academia, and will bring them up-to-date on this topic of major industrial concern.
