Zeolites for Cleaner Technologies (Catalytic Science Series, by M. Guisnet, Jean-Pierre Gilson

By M. Guisnet, Jean-Pierre Gilson

This paintings, written and edited by way of top experts from academia and commercial teams, covers either preventive- and curative-zeolite-based applied sciences within the box of chemical processing. the hole bankruptcy provides the state of the art in zeolite technological know-how. the 2 next chapters summarize the chemistries fascinated with the tactics and the restrictions imposed at the catalyst/adsorbent. 3 significant components are coated: oil refining; petrochemicals; and fantastic chemical compounds. A bankruptcy at the (curative) use of zeolites in toxins abatement completes this review. within the sector of oil refining, a common lecture units the scene for current and destiny demanding situations. it really is through in-depth case experiences concerning FCC, hydrocracking and lightweight naphtha isomerization. additionally, a complete bankruptcy is dedicated to the often-overlooked topic of base oils. within the zone of petrochemicals, the processing of aromatics and olefins is defined and distinct awareness is paid to the synergy among catalysis and separation on molecular sieves. integrated is a bankruptcy at the dynamic box of oxidations. within the sector of excellent chemical compounds, the rising box of zeolite functions is brought in a common lecture and particular purposes are mentioned.

The Total Survey Error Approach: A Guide to the New Science by Herbert F. Weisberg

By Herbert F. Weisberg

In 1939, George Gallup's American Institute of Public Opinion released a pamphlet confidently titled The New technological know-how of Public Opinion Measurement. on the time, notwithstanding, survey learn was once in its infancy, and in basic terms now, six many years later, can public opinion size be effectively referred to as a technology, established partly at the improvement of the complete survey blunders approach.

Herbert F. Weisberg's guide provides a unified process for carrying out strong survey examine based at the quite a few varieties of blunders which can happen in surveys—from dimension and nonresponse blunders to assurance and sampling errors. each one bankruptcy is equipped on theoretical parts drawn from particular disciplines, similar to social psychology and facts, and follows via with unique remedies of the categorical sorts of errors and their power strategies. all through, Weisberg is responsive to survey constraints, together with time and moral concerns, in addition to controversies in the box and the results of latest know-how at the survey process—from net surveys to these accomplished through mobilephone, through mail, and in individual.
