Catalysis for the Conversion of Biomass and Its Derivatives
Malte Behrens (Herausgeber), Abhaya K. Datye (Herausgeber)
This book is aimed at students and scientists in the interdisciplinary field of catalysis for an introduction to the emerging field of biomass conversion and an overview on recent developments and challenges. The papers are based on lectures presented by the authors at a summer school organized by the Fritz-Haber-Institut and held in August 2010 at Kloster Seeon in Germany in the framework of the National Science Foundation-funded program "Partnership in International Research and Education: Molecular Engineering for the Conversion of Biomass Derived Reactants to Fuels, Chemicals, and Materials."
The series "Proceedings" of the Max Planck Research Library for the History and Development of Knowledge presents the results of scientific meetings on current issues and supports further cooperation on these issues via an electronic platform. The volumes are available both as print-on-demand books and as open-access publications on the Internet. The material is freely accessible online at www.edtion-open-access.de, supplemented by additional information and interactive features. The original scholarly work presented in these volumes is published under the responsibility of designated members of the Scientific Board and their appointed reviewers.
