About this book


This book is the third volume of Nanotechnology in Catalysis. Although has been only 2 years since the Volumes 1 and 2 were published, many new contributions and breakthroughs have been made by researchers all over the world, showing the dynamic of nanotechnology in catalysis area. The topics in the book are the most up-to-date information on the forefront of nanotechnology development in catalysis field. They include the new concept and applications of nanotechnology for catalysis, the preparation and characterization of nanoparticle and nanostructure catalysts, and the examples of the superior activity and selectivity achieved by using such nanocatalysts. This book provides an in-depth understanding of how nanotechnology can affect the future generation of catalyst development.

This book is beneficial to a broad range of readers. It can be used as a textbook by professors and students for graduate or undergraduate curriculum. The advanced nanoscience and nanotechnology concepts are written in a textbook style to facilitate the readers who are new to this fascinating area. Researchers and engineers in industry may gain ideas on how nanoparticles and nanostructured materials can be made for and applied to industrial processes. Government officials may consult the book for understanding the new concepts and applications of nanomaterials.
