Topics in Inorganic Chemistry - Catalysis

Andrew B. Bocarsly
Susan K. VanderKam

This is a survey course which includes study of the kinetics of catalytic systems, analytic techniques to identify key species, and the exploration of well-established catalytic processes. Both heterogeneous and homogeneous catalyst systems are covered. The importance of surface morphology in heterogeneous systems is investigated along with an introduction to electrocatalysis.
