The UK Catalysis Hub has collaborated to publish a book titled, “Modern developments in Catalysis”. The book is a series of chapters reviewing on the current state of catalysis research. Chapters focus on the breadth of the field of catalysis including biocatalysis, homogenous and heterogeneous catalysis, operando and in situ techniques, modelling and theoretical studies including life cycle analysis. Each chapter was written by research associates working on Catalysis Hub projects and edited by academic within the Hub. The book was edited by the theme leaders of the Catalysis Hub with input from Paul Collier (Johnson Matthey) to give an industrial perspective. The book sets out to explain to a reader interested in chemistry the cutting-edge topics in the important field of catalysis.
