In the field of chemical industry and industrial research, catalysis plays an imperative role. Different catalysts are in continual progress to attain economic, political and environmental desire. When using a catalyst it can swap a polluting chemical reaction with a more environmentally friendly alternative. Today, and in the future, this can be vital for the chemical industry. In addition, it’s important for a company/researcher to pay attention to market development. Some of the large chemical processes that use catalysis today are the production of methanol and ammonia

Chemical kinetics is vital for understanding a number of processes, for example how food is metabolized, how pharmaceuticals play a beautiful role in the biological system, and how pollutants which are produced by gasoline combustion are converted for release into the atmosphere. Chemical Kinetics and Catalysis meets this challenge and provides an appropriate text for the next generation of scientists in this field.  The molecular addition of hydrogen molecule to ethylene is a prototype of symmetry forbidden reaction. Moreover, recent theoretical calculations have shown that the barrier for a reduced symmetry path is not very high, thus in this process catalysis for the reaction is very much

This field of study amalgamate facet of organic, organometallic, and inorganic chemistry. Synthesis forms a considerable component of most programs in this area. Mechanistic scrutiny are often undertaken to discover how an unexpected product is formed or to rearrange the recital of a catalytic system. Because synthesis and catalysis are essential, to the construction of new materials, Catalysts are progressively used by chemists busy in fine chemical synthesis within both industry and academia. Today, there prevail huge choices of high-tech catalysts, which add enormously to the repertoire of synthetic possibilities. However, catalysts are intermittently fickle, sometimes grueling to use and almost always require both skill and experience in order to achieve optimal results

It has become a substitute method of choice for the production of fine chemicals at high yields and excellent selectivity under mild reaction condition. The impact of bio catalysis in the future will be  the enlarge of ability to use enzymes to catalyze chemical reactions in industrial processes, including the manufacture of drug material, flavors, fragrances, electronic chemicals, polymers—chemicals that literally impact almost every facet of your life. In adopting biocatalysis as a mainstream technology for chemical production, is introducing a technology that is greener, reduces pollution and cost, and creates greater sustainability Environmental catalysis and Nano Catalysis.

Biotransformation is a chemical modification (or modifications) of chemical compounds such as nutrients amino acids , toxins and drugs in the body  by an organism ending  in the production of mineral compounds like CO2, NH4+, H2O or water soluble compounds so that it can be easily eliminated from the body

A swift progress in the research of organometallic and coordination compounds has the trigger to the advancement and effective industrial application of a number of catalytic processes based on the use of these compounds as catalysts. The major advantage of organometallic catalysis that has led to its widespread adoption by industry is selectivity, the ability to produce pure products in high yield.

The dearth of metal in organocatalyst brings an indisputable advantage considering both the principles of “green chemistry” and the economic point of view. It is a novel synthetic philosophy and mostly an alternative to the prevalent transition metal catalysis. Organocatalysts are often based on nontoxic organic compounds originating from biological materials. Organocatalysts can be Lewis bases, Lewis acids, Brønsted bases, and Brønsted acids

Spectroscopy might be a strategy whereby the spectroscopic characterization of materials undergoing reaction is coupled at an equivalent time with lives of chemical process activity and property. The primary concern of this method is to establish structure-reactivity/selectivity relationships of catalysts and thereby yield information regarding mechanisms. Totally different uses unit of measurement as a tool for engineering enhancements to existing chemical process materials and processes and as a tool for developing new ones.

Moreover, we present a perspective on the challenges and opportunities in future research on Nanocatalysis.

Polymer engineering is a sub-field of materials engineering primarily focusing on the development of new products. Polymer engineers often study plastics, although other substances are also considered polymers. It is emerging as one of the most important fields of engineering with varied applications in low weight–high strength designs, aerospace applications and in general replacing metals with same strength with lesser density. Besides the design of the polymers and particles, we also address the issues of cost-effectiveness and reaction engineering, especially in water-based polymerization techniques like emulsion polymerization.

The sustainable, environmentally friendly and economical production of monomers and polymers requires highly efficient catalysts. Use of catalysis for non-polymer related processes, such as hydrogenation, selective oxidation.

Reorganization of a compound into smaller and simpler compounds, or compounds of  lofty molecular weight, under elevated temperatures usually in the range of 400°C to 800°C to as high as 1400°C. It differs from combustion in that it occurs in the absence of air and therefore no oxidation takes place. The pyrolytic disintegration of wood forms a large number of chemical substances. Some of these chemicals can be used as substitutes for conventional fuels. The dispersal of the products varies with the chemical composition of the biomass and the operating conditions.

Slow pyrolysis at low to moderate temperatures (around 300 °C) and long reaction times (up to days) has been used for thousands of years for the conversion of wood into high yields of charcoal (bio-carbon). The slow pyrolysis process generates also lower yields of bio-oil and gaseous products. However, in the past 30 years, fast pyrolysis, carried out at intermediate temperatures (around 500 °C) and very short reaction times (1 to 5 seconds) has become of considerable interest as a method for producing higher yields of bio-oil (normally around 65 wt%) with significantly higher energy density than the original biomass, in addition to bio-carbon (20%) and gas (15%).

Depending on the pyrolysis  process and on the biomass material utilized, both the yields as well as the physical and chemical characteristics of the products and consequently, their performance, vary considerably.

Nowadays, energy security and sustainable development are two major challenges encountered by the world. Renewable energy should be studied extensively to explore new technologies and in order to maintain secure energy sources for sustainable development, considering the fact that the energy demand is increasing, depleting fossil fuel reserves, with increasing populations and economic development.

Pyrolysis-Gas Chromatography  has evolved to become a routine analytical tool for the characterization and differentiation of polymers, both natural and synthetic. Several types of thermal analysis equipment have been developed to improve the analytical scope of Py-GC. The introduction of laser pyrolysis has become a new phenomenon for Py-GC. Furthermore, the development of a novel double-shot pyrolyzer incorporating both thermal desorption and flash pyrolysis, has become a useful instrument for the fast identification of low molecular weight polymer additives. Future developments in Py-GC technology have also been suggested, which include the use of comprehensive GC × GC
