Description:

This first textbook to cover all aspects of catalysis also bridges computational methods, industrial applications and green chemistry. The author also teaches scientific writing, making him the ideal person to write such a textbook, and the practicability of his approach has been well proven in his courses. Following an introduction to green chemistry and the basics of catalysis, the text deals with bio-, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis as well as computer applications in catalysis research. Finally, the integrated questions and answers represent a vital aid to students in preparing for their exams.

Gadi Rothenberg is Associate Professor at the University of Amsterdam, where he heads the catalyst discovery team and teaches catalysis and scietific writing. He has published 65 papers in peer-reviewed journals and many popular science articles. He discovered two new catalysts, for which he received the Marie Curie Excellence Award in 2004 and the Paul Rylander Award in 2006. Rothenberg also invented a method for monitoring pollutants in water, and co-founded the evironmental sampling company Sorbinese. He is married, owns no car, and has a black belt in Shaolin Fung-Fu.
