Available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Heterogeneous Photocatalysis: Relationships with Heterogeneous Catalysis and Perspectives highlights the differences between thermal-catalysis and photo-catalysis and indicates borderlines, in particular, the possible synergism between them. The book outlines the basic aspect of thermal- and photo-catalysis, along with the most important characterization techniques. In addition, it presents case studies of thermal-catalytic and photo-catalytic or thermal-photo-catalytic reactions and includes a comparison between the results obtained using an inorganic solid as thermal catalyst and photocatalyst for the same reaction, and in the same setup. Final sections offer information on the preparation methods of (photo)catalysts, various techniques used for their characterization, engineering and economical aspects. This book will be a valuable reference source for students and researchers involved in heterogeneous photocatalysis and catalysis, chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, materials engineering, environment engineering, nanotechnology and green chemistry. Provides selective methods for the preparation of microcrystalline/nanocrystalline solids or films used in catalytic and photocatalytic processes Describes (photo)reactions that can be carried out catalytically and/or photocatalytically Outlines the different mechanisms, yields and experimental conditions under which photocatalytic reactions can take place Describes various (photo)reactors and set ups under which the photacatalytic reactions can be carried out Provides an economic assessment to understand the feasibility of some photocatalytic reactions
