About this book

There is much interest in preparing catalysts with specific structures for a desired catalytic activity. Although there has been a great amount of research into correlating particles sizes and microstructure to catalytic activity, knowledge about practical catalysts still remain ill-defined. The current challenge is now to understand atomic control.

Atomically-Precise Methods for Synthesis of Solid Catalysts provides an overview of recent developments in heterogeneous catalysts preparation which aim at controlling the microstructure of such catalysts at the atomic scale. Each chapter provides a different synthetic approach to achieve atomic-scale control along techniques to characterize the atomically-precise solids. Topics covered include bimetallic supported catalysts from single-source precursors zeolite-supported molecular metal complex catalyst, surface organometallic chemistry, atomic layer deposition and electron microscopy of catalysts.

Edited by active researchers in the area, the book aims to bridge the gap between surface science and heterogeneous catalysis. The book is suitable for graduate students as well as researchers in academia in industry from various disciplines including engineering, inorganic/organometallic chemistry, surface science and physical chemistry interested in catalyst design.
