New and Future Developments in Catalysis is a package of seven books that compile the latest ideas concerning alternate and renewable energy sources and the role that catalysis plays in converting new renewable feedstock into biofuels and biochemicals. Both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts and catalytic processes will be discussed in a unified and comprehensive approach. There will be extensive cross-referencing within all volumes. This volume covers the synthesis of hybrid materials and composites using organocatalysts. All available catalytic processes are listed and a critical comparison is made between homogeneous versus heterogeneous catalytic processes. The economic pros and cons of the various processes are also discussed and recommendations are made for future research needs.
