about this item

Written by chemists and chemical engineers from the US, Middle East, Europe, and Asia, the 15 articles in this volume outline developments in petrochemical technologies, focusing on technologies for catalyst materials for fuel upgrading, particularly sulfur removal, syngas conversion, alkane and oxygen activation, and the functionalization of polymers, as well as safety. They address the use of acyclic diene metathesis (ADMET) in the synthesis of functionalized polyolefins; catalytic technologies for selective oxidation of lower alkanes; palladium in heterogeneous oxidation catalysis; the production of ethylene and its commercial importance in the global market; membrane engineering and its role in oil refining; sustainable process integration; safety and efficiency enhancement in liquefied natural gas terminals; advances in catalytic conversion of syngas to ethanol and higher alcohols; the preparation of deep hydrodesulfurization catalysts for diesel fuel using organic matrix decomposition; desulfurization of fuel oils using ionic liquids; catalysis with room temperature ionic liquids mediated metal nanoparticles; kinetic models for complex parallel-consecutive reactions assessment of reaction network and product selectivity; valorization of glycerol to fine chemicals and fuels; the role of perovskite hollow fiber membranes in methane oxidation reactions; and the preparation, characterization, and desulfurization of the supported nickel phosphide catalysts.
