About this book


The objective of this workshop on homogeneous catalysis was to identi­ fy opportunities for the solution of energy problems and industrial produc­ tion problems by homogeneous catalysis. The first day of the workshop was devoted to plenary lectures on frontier areas in homogeneous catalysis which set the tone for the workshop. On succeeding days of the workshop, the participants were divided into five working groups for discussion of various aspects of homogeneous catalysis. Each of the five workshops engaged in extensive discussions and then formulated a rough draft of their report and recommendations. The reports of the working groups were presented at a plenary session and suggestions for changes and revisions were made. These minor revisions were incorporated into the working group report by the Co-Chairmen of the working groups. This workshop on homogeneous catalysis was sponsored by the Na­ tional Science Foundation (United States) and by the National Research Council (Italy). Additional financial support was provided by Montedison, E.N.I., and S.I.R. We wish to thank Mr. William M. Tsutsui for typing and assisting in the editorial work. The Robert A. Welch Foundation Grant A-420 partial­ ly supported the time spent by M. Tsutsui for the organization of the work­ shop and the editorial work of the proceedings.
