3rd World Congress on Oxidation Catalaysis, Proceedings of the 3rd World Congress on Oxidation Catalysis
The overall theme of these papers - taken from the 3rd World Congress - is "Atom Efficient Catalytic Oxidations for Global Technologies". The contributors report their findings with an emphasis on conserving valuable material in their catalytic transformations, as well as conserving energy in an environmentally responsible manner. The subjects presented span a wide range of oxidation reactions and catalysts. These include the currently important area of lower alkane oxidation to the corresponding olefins, unsaturated aldehydes, acids and nitriles. The four featured lectures and seven plenary lectures constitute the general background and overview of the subject matter at hand. The 104 contributed papers and 13 poster manuscripts summarized probe a variety of avenues to achieve catalytically efficient oxidation reactions for the future needs of mankind in a glogal environment.
