Engineering of chemical complexity by A. S Mikhailov( )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 2,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second review volume is a follow-up to the book "Engineering of Chemical Complexity" that appeared in 2013. Co-edited by the Nobel laureate Gerhard Ertl, this book provides a broad perspective over the current research aimed at understanding, the design and control of complex chemical systems of various origins, on the scales ranging from single molecules and nano-phenomena to macroscopic chemical reactors. Self-organization behavior and emergence of coherent collective dynamics in reaction-diffusion systems, in active soft matter and biochemical networks are discussed. Special attention
Low energy electrons and surface chemistry by G Ertl( Book )

Reactions at solid surfaces by G Ertl( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Expanding on the ideas first presented in Gerhard Ertl's acclaimed Baker Lectures at Cornell University, Reactions at Solid Surfaces comprises an authoritative, self-contained, book-length introduction to surface reactions for both professional chemists and students alike. Outlining our present understanding of the fundamental processes underlying reactions at solid surfaces, the book provides the reader with a complete view of how chemistry works at surfaces, and how to understand and probe the dynamics of surface reactions."--Jacket
Handbook of heterogeneous catalysis by G Ertl( )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now in 8 volumes, the completely revised and expanded second edition of this much-cited handbook collates the knowledge available on heterogeneous catalysis, providing easy-to-find yet comprehensive information. The new edition contains some 80% more material and takes into account the latest developments in the field, making it still the most up-to-date compendium in heterogeneous catalysis. More than 300 leading experts -- a veritable "Who's Who" in catalysis -- contributed to this unrivalled masterpiece, covering all aspects of the subject, from the physico-chemical foundations to large-scale industrial applications. With its straightforward presentation, this is an essential and indispensable tool for every scientist working in this area

Preparation of solid catalysts( )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and German and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Solid catalysts play a fundamental role in all areas between basic research and industrial applications. This book offers a large amount of information about the preparation of solid catalysts. All types of solid catalysts and all important aspects of their preparation are discussed. The highly topical contributions are written by leading experts in disciplines ranging from solid state, interface and solution chemistry to industrial engineering. The straightforward presentation of the material and the comprehensive coverage make this book an essential and indispensible tool for every scientist

Chemical complexity : self-organization processes in molecular systems by A. S Mikhailov( )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an outline of theoretical concepts and their experimental verification in studies of self-organization phenomena in chemical systems, as they emerged in the mid-20th century and have evolved since. Presenting essays on selected topics, it was prepared by authors who have made profound contributions to the field. Traditionally, physical chemistry has been concerned with interactions between atoms and molecules that produce a variety of equilibrium structures - or the 'dead' order - in a stationary state. But biological cells exhibit a different 'living' kind of order, prompting E. Schrödinger to pose his famous question "What is life?" in 1943. Through an unprecedented theoretical and experimental development, it was later revealed that biological self-organization phenomena are in complete agreement with the laws of physics, once they are applied to a special class of thermodynamically open systems and non-equilibrium states. This knowledge has in turn led to the design and synthesis of simple inorganic systems capable of self-organization effects. These artificial 'living organisms' are able to operate on macroscopic to microscopic scales, even down to single-molecule machines. In the future, such research could provide a basis for a technological breakthrough, comparable in its impact with the invention of lasers and semiconductors. Its results can be used to control natural chemical processes, and to design artificial complex chemical processes with various functionalities. The book offers an extensive discussion of the history of research on complex chemical systems and its future prospects. Gerhard Ertl received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2007 for his studies on heterogeneous catalysis and self-organization processes in surface chemical reactions. He was the director of the Physical Chemistry department at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin, where he is currently a Professor Emeritus. Prof. Alexander S. Mikhailov, of the same institute, is a theoretical physicist who has been working with G. Ertl for more than twenty years. He is the author of three monographs published by Springer and was awarded the International Solvay Chair in Chemistry in 2009. Together, the authors initiated and organized a series of international conferences on "Engineering of Chemical Complexity."
Engineering of chemical complexity II by Engineering of Chemical Complexity (Conference)( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second review volume is a follow-up to the book "Engineering of Chemical Complexity" that appeared in 2013. Co-edited by the Nobel laureate Gerhard Ertl, this book provides a broad perspective over the current research aimed at understanding, the design and control of complex chemical systems of various origins, on the scales ranging from single molecules and nano-phenomena to macroscopic chemical reactors. Self-organization behavior and emergence of coherent collective dynamics in reaction-diffusion systems, in active soft matter and biochemical networks are discussed. Special attention is paid to applications in cell biology, to molecular motors and microfluidics effects. The reviews, prepared by leading international experts from the EU, USA, Russia and Japan, together yield a fascinating picture of a rapidly developing research discipline that brings chemical engineering to new frontiers

N : Stickstoff - ein Element schreibt Weltgeschichte by G Ertl( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Er ist häufig und knapp zugleich: Mit jedem Atemzug gelangt er in unsere Lungen und doch begrenzte er lange Zeit das pflanzliche Wachstum und hielt so die Zahl der Menschen auf niedrigem Niveau. Es dauerte bis zum Vorabend des Ersten Weltkrieges, ehe sich die Menschheit aus der Stickstofffalle befreien konnte. Fritz Haber und Carl Bosch erfanden ein Verfahren, mit dessen Hilfe der Stickstoff der Luft gebunden werden konnte, und brachten damit den Kunstdünger in die Welt. Was als Siegeszug begann, endete Jahre spatter allerdings in einer wahren Stickstoffflut, die bis heute Gewässer umkippen lässt, den Klimawandel befeuert und in Form von Nitrat im Trinkwasser auftaucht. Der neueste Band der Stoffgeschichten gibt dem gleichermassen unsichtbaren wie unterschätzten Stoff ein Gesicht, indem er seine Geschichte erzählt und die Umweltprobleme diskutiert, die er heute mit sich bringt. 'Professor Genie erklärt uns seine Formel' titelte stolz die Berliner Zeitung, als Gerhard Ertl im Dezember 2007 den Nobelpreis für Chemie erhielt. Dem emeritierten Direktor der Berliner Max-Planck-Gesellschaft war es gelungen, die Mechanismen des Haber-Bosch-Verfahrens zu identifizieren. Jens Soentgen leitet das Wissenschaftszentrum Umwelt (WZU) der Universität Augsburg und ist mit Armin Reller Herausgeber der Reihe Stoffgeschichten. 'N' ist der neunte Band der Reihe
