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.
