Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 7 feb 2014 - 388 pagine

Transformation and Utilization of Carbon Dioxide shows the various organic, polymeric and inorganic compounds which result from the transformation of carbon dioxide through chemical, photocatalytic, electrochemical, inorganic and biological processes. The book consists of twelve chapters demonstrating interesting examples of these reactions, depending on the types of reaction and catalyst. It also includes two chapters dealing with the utilization of carbon dioxide as a reaction promoter and presents a wide range of examples of chemistry and chemical engineering with carbon dioxide. Transformation and Utilization of Carbon Dioxide is a collective work of reviews illustrative of recent advances in the transformation and utilization of carbon dioxide. This book is interesting and useful to a wide readership in the various fields of chemical science and engineering.

Bhalchandra Bhanage is a professor of industrial and engineering chemistry at Institute of Chemical Technology, India.

Masahiko Arai is a professor of chemical engineering at Hokkaido University, Japan.

Informazioni sull'autore (2014)

Bhalchandra Bhanage obtained his doctorate from Pune University in 1996. He spent more than one year at Tohoku University, Japan (1997-1998) and Hokkaido University, Japan between 2000 and 2003 as postdoctoral fellow with Prof. M. Arai. In 2004, he joined the Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, India as a professor of industrial and engineering chemistry. Among his current interests is catalysis using carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and hydrogen. He worked on developing novel catalysts for various coupling reactions, carbonylations, hydroformylations, aminations etc. He is also working on nanoparticle synthesis, enzymatic catalysis and use of non-conventional techniques like ultrasound and microwaves for various reactions.

Masahiko Arai obtained his doctorate from Tohoku University at Sendai in 1979. He was at the Institute for Chemical Reaction Science, Tohoku University, from 1979 to 1999. He spent about one year at Leiden University, The Netherlands and Wisconsin University, USA, from 1986 to 1987. He has been at Hokkaido University since 2000 as a professor of chemical engineering. Among his current interests are the utilization of pressurized carbon dioxide as a reaction medium, promoter and reactant for organic synthetic reactions, the preparation and application of nitrogen-doped carbon materials as metal-free catalysts, multiphase organic reactions in the presence of carbon dioxide, water and supported metal catalysts and the catalysis of synthetic mesoporous smectite-like materials.
