Catalysis and the environment

R.A. Santen, van

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


A review with 5 refs. concerning chem.-related environmental problems focusing on catalytic solns. is given. Topics discussed include: sources of environmental concerns; catalytic environmental technologies (waste stream cleaning, catalytic vs. stoichiometric processes, conversion of waste products into useful products, enantiomeric catalysis, replacing hazardous chems., energy prodn.); background environmental chem. (UV light screening: the O3 hole, greenhouse gases, lower troposphere: smog formation)
