Call for Book Chapters on “Hydroprocessing Catalysts and Processes”

Dr. Duncan Seddon and I are currently editing a book entitled “Hydroprocessing catalysts and processes: The challenges for bio-fuels production”, which will be published in the Catalytic Science series by World Scientific Publishing. This book is to introduce the recent progress in the mechanism of hydroprocessing reactions, application of different metals in hydroprocessing, the effect of catalyst supports, advances in preparation technologies, applications in refining new feedstock, commercial processes, hydrogen production, and environmental and safety issues.
