1. “Catalysis: Science and Technology” by John R Anderson and Michel Boudart

“Catalysis: Science and Technology” Book Review: This book is written for chemistry students and people interested in catalysis. Chapter 1 explains the wide range of useful approaches and techniques used when one is restricted to quasi-steady state conditions and this is explained by Professor R. L. Burwell. In chapter 2 Professor K. Tamaru explains techniques which depend on observations under non­ steady state conditions (i. e. relaxation methods) which have been used in mechanistic studies in recent years. In chapter 3 Professor G. L. Haller and Dr. G. W. Coulston writes about how an elementary reaction proceeds in terms of movement in a multi coordinate space where the variables define atomic positions and energy along with allied topics.

2. “Catalysis: An Integrated Approach (Studies in Surface Science and Catalysis)” by B A Averill and J A Moulijn

“Catalysis: An Integrated Approach (Studies in Surface Science and Catalysis)” Book Review: This book is written for chemistry students and people interested in chemistry. The book contains industrially relevant reactions which are catalyzed by heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysts. The spectroscopic techniques and theoretical modelling in homogeneous catalysis by metal complexes are treated jointly with heterogeneous catalysis. Following the development of catalysis in the recent years, a thorough revision has been done since the first edition of this book. The book also contains special chapters on biocatalysis, catalyst characterization and adsorption methods.

3. “Crown Ethers and Phase Transfer Catalysis in Polymer Science (Polymer Science and Technology Series)” by Lon Mathias

“Crown Ethers and Phase Transfer Catalysis in Polymer Science (Polymer Science and Technology Series)” Book Review: This book is written for chemistry students and people interested in catalysis. The book explains Phase transfer catalysis or interfacial catalysis in detail. Many books have been written about applications in which low molecular weight catalysts like crown ethers or onium salts of various kinds are employed. Although phase transfer catalysis is relatively new, the concept of using a phase transfer agent (PTA) is much older and is elaborately explained in this book. The book also explains the use of polymer-bound phase transfer agents which is a recent development. Several reviews dealing with l6 polymer-related investigations are published in this book.
