Written by an excellent, highly experienced and motivated team of lecturers, this textbook is based on one of the most successful courses in catalysis and as such is tried-and-tested by generations of graduate and PhD students.
It covers all essential aspects of this important topic, including homogeneous, heterogeneous and biocatalysis, but also kinetics, reactor design and engineering.

The perfect source of information for graduate and PhD students in chemistry and chemical engineering, as well as for scientists wanting to refresh their knowledge.

About the author (2018)

Prof. Ulf Hanefeld is Professor of Biocatalysis at the Department of Biotechnology at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. His research focuses on the hydroxynitrile lyase enzymes, heterogeneous catalysis combined with biocatalysis, and more broadly on the catalytic formation of carbon-carbon bonds. Besides his extensive research portfolio, Hanefeld is an important figurehead for education in biocatalysis.

Leon Lefferts is Professor at Twente University. He is member of the board of NIOK and had several functions including chairman of the board of the Catalysis Section of the Royal Dutch Chemical Society. He has been visiting professor at Tokyo Institute of Technology, 2005-2007. He acted as director of the research institute IMPACT (2010-2011) and the Green Energy Initiative (2013-) at the University of Twente. He was appointed as a Finnish Distinguished Professor in 2011 as a visiting professor at Aalto University in Helsinki. His research interests within the field of applied heterogeneous catalysis.
