Green Chemistry and Catalysis.pdf
This second edition of the successful reference features 50% new content, with the chapters on renewable raw materials, process integration and the outlook practically completely re-written. The book retains its impressive scope, discussing and analyzing homogeneous, heterogeneous and biocatalysis equally. In addition, reactions and processes are examined from the current viewpoint, as well as how they can be improved and which green and sustainable alternatives are available. The result is a unified, indispensable source for all scientists interested in green chemistry and improving their catalytic reactions, whether in academia or industry.
"...The book is very well referenced and illustrated and its layout is very well thought out and executed. It makes clear that catalysis, the bedrock of the petrochemical industry, will play an equally crucial role in the invention and reinvention of green processes." Chemsitry World, 08/2007 "...The book is very well referenced and illustrated and its layout is very well thought out and executed." Chemistry World, August 2007
Prof. Roger Sheldon recently retired from his position as Chair of Biocatalysis and Organic Chemistry, Delft University of Technolgy, The Netherlands. His research career started with a PhD at the University of Leicester, United Kingdom and a postdoctoral stay with Jay Kochi at Indiana University, USA. Roger Sheldon then joined the Shell laboratories in Amsterdam. He later became Research Director at Andeno (subsequently acquired by DSM). After a part-time professor appointment at the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, he then took up his position at the Delft University of Technology in 1991. He is CEO of the spin-off company CLEA Technologies, which he founded in 2002. Prof. Isabel Arends is Full Professor and Group leader in Biocatalysis and Organic Chemistry, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Prof. Arends received her PhD in Physical Organic Chemistry in 1993 from the University of Leiden, The Netherlands under the supervision of Prof. Robert Louw. Postdoctoral work followed with Prof. Keith Ingold at the National Research Council, Canada. She then joined the group of Prof. Roger Sheldon at the Delft University of Technology in 1995, and joined the faculty of the Department of Biotechnology in 2001. Her research focuses on the development of redox biocatalysts, and on the design of chemo/ biocatalystic methods in general. Prof. Arends is the author of over 100 publications, 5 patents and has contributed to 13 book chapters. Prof. Ulf Hanefeld is Professor of Biocatalysis at the Department of Biotechnology at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Prof. Hanefeld graduated in 1993 magna cum laude from the Georg-August-Universitat in Gottingen, Germany. He subsequently held several postdoctoral positions at internationally renowned universities such as Imperial College London and University of Cambridge, United Kingsom. A KNAW-fellowship followed and in 2007 he was appointed as Associate Professor within the Biocatalysis and Organic Chemistry (BOC) Section of the Department of Biotechnology. Prof. Hanefeld's research focuses on the hydroxynitrile lyase enzymes, heterogeneous catalysis combined with biocatalysis, and more broadly on the catalytic formation of carbon-carbon bonds. Besides his extensive research portfolio, Hanefeld is an important figurehead for education in biocatalysis.
