Now in it's 3rd Edition, Industrial Catalysis offers all relevant information on catalytic processes in industry, including many recent examples. Perfectly suited for self-study, it is the ideal companion for scientists who want to get into the field or refresh existing knowledge. The updated edition covers the full range of industrial aspects, from catalyst development and testing to process examples and catalyst recycling. The book is characterized by its practical relevance, expressed by a selection of over 40 examples of catalytic processes in industry. In addition, new chapters on catalytic processes with renewable materials and polymerization catalysis have been included. Existing chapters have been carefully revised and supported by new subchapters, for example, on metathesis reactions, refinery processes, petrochemistry and new reactor concepts. "I found the book accesible, readable and interesting - both as a refresher and as an introduction to new topics - and a convenient first reference on current industrial catalytic practise and processes." Excerpt from a book review for the second edition by P. C. H. Mitchell, Applied Organometallic Chemistry (2007)

"This is the third addition of Jens Hagens overview of the industrial application of catalytic science and engineering. As with previous editions this work covers a wide range of catalytic processes spanning heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, including chapters on biocatalysis and electrocatalysis. This edition has been extensively revised and includes additions not present in earlier versions. A key feature of the text is inclusion of exercises in each chapter, with solutions provided...[This book] would...be a useful reference for an introductory undergraduate course on catalysis, for whom the exercises would be particularly valuable, or to a researcher starting out in area unfamiliar to them...
...an excellent overview of catalysis and its applications more broadly..."(AOC review March 2017)
