Aims and scope
The journal covers the following topical areas:
- Analysis of specific industrial catalytic processes:
Production and use of catalysts in branches of industry: chemical, petrochemical, oil-refining, pharmaceutical, organic synthesis, fuel-energetic industries, environment protection, biocatalysis; technology of industrial catalytic processes (generalization of practical experience, improvements, and modernization); technology of catalysts production, raw materials and equipment; control of catalysts quality; starting, reduction, passivation, discharge, storage of catalysts; catalytic reactors.
- Theoretical foundations of industrial catalysis and technologies:
Research, studies, and concepts : search for and development of new catalysts and new types of supports, formation of active components, and mechanochemistry in catalysis; comprehensive studies of work-out catalysts and analysis of deactivation mechanisms; studies of the catalytic process at different scale levels (laboratory, pilot plant, industrial); kinetics of industrial and newly developed catalytic processes and development of kinetic models; nonlinear dynamics and nonlinear phenomena in catalysis: multiplicity of stationary states, stepwise changes in regimes, etc.
- Advances in catalysis:
Catalysis and gas chemistry; catalysis and new energy technologies; biocatalysis; nanocatalysis; catalysis and new construction materials.
- History of the development of industrial catalysis.
