        Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths, Volume 29 The Role of Rare Earths in Catalysis

      North Holland. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 436 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.5in. x 1.3in.Among the numerous applications of the rare-earth elements, the field of catalysis accounts for a large number. Catalysis represents approximately 20 of the total market sales of rare earths worldwide. As a matter of fact two main applications have been prominent in the last decades: zeolite stabilization for fluid cracking catalysts, and automotive post-combustion catalytic treatment. The oldest use of rare earths in catalysis deals with the structural and chemical stabilization of the zeolites for petroleum cracking applications. For a long time this has been an area of application for non-separated rare earths. The addition of several percent of rare earths in the pores of the zeolite results in a strong surface acidity, which is essential for an efficient conversion of high-weight molecules into lighter species, like low-octane fuel, even in the very aggressive conditions of the petroleum industry. The popular demand for high-quality air in spite of the traffic congestion in large cities resulted in larger and larger constraints in the emission exhaust from cars. Thus highly efficient catalysts have had to be designed, and due to the combination of its redox properties and very good thermal stability, cerium oxide has been since the beginning, early in the 1980s, a major component of the three-way catalysts (TWC) now used in all modern gasoline cars. The future of rare earths in catalysis is probably bright. The fact that approximately 400 patents are applied for yearly in the area since 1992 is an illustration of a very active area. Usage of rare earths in catalysis is expected to grow due to their highly specific properties. Instead of the physical properties used in electronic applications, one deals now with redox properties, water and thermal stability, coordination numbers and so forth. The rare earths are so specific in these properties that their use can hardly be avoided, not only for the beauty of academic studies but also for the development of industrial applications with immediate influence on everyday life. Careful control of the synthesis conditions and the definition of optimum composition in each case are the keys to the preparation of highly performing compounds for catalytic applications. They must actually be considered as high performance products with functional properties, and not just chemical species. Chapters devoted primarily to catalysis have been published in earlier volumes of the Handbook. In this volume several more are added. The first is an extension of the earlier chapter 43, on interactions at surfaces of metals and alloys, to reactions such as hydrogenation, methanation, ammonia synthesis, saturated hydrocarbon reactions, dehydrogenation of hydrogenated materials, hydrodesulfurization, and carbon monoxide oxidation. The second chapter reports on the wide variety of catalyzed reactions involving metals and alloys in the innovated form of metal overlayers or bimetallic compounds with some transition metals produced from ammonia solutions. This is followed by a chapter on catalysis with mixed oxides usually having perovskite or perovskite-related structures. Then follows a comprehensive discussion on the background and current role of cerium oxide and associated materials for post-treatment of exhaust gases for pollution control. These three-way catalysts (TWC) are designed to render harmless the CO, NOx, and unburned hydrocarbons from internal combustion engines. The next chapter considers the wide field of zeolite catalysts containing rare earths from their historic use in petroleum refining in the 1960s to other petrochemical and fine chemical applications today. The final chapter documents the use of the triflates (the trifluoro-methane-sulfonyl group which is a hard Lewis acid in both aqueous and o This item ships from multiple locations.

Artwork by Gustavo Rivera. Text by Nahuatl-speaking poets excerpted from the transcriptions of the Spanish missionaries, Friars Bernardino de Sahagun, Adres de Olmos, Toribio de Benavente, Motolinia, and other informants, who between the years of 1524 and 1585 chronicled the wealth of Nahuatl poetry which survived the Conquest of Mexico. Edited and translated by Michael Dunev." Miguel Leon Portilla, "Flower and Song: Poetry" from Nahuatl Philosophy (quoted on the reverse of the title page of this suite): "One of the most profound of Nahuatl metaphors 'Flowers and Songs,' is repeated countless times throughout Nahuatl poetry as being the highest form of expression upon earth. Considered in essence to be the only way through which Truth could be expressed, this concept was so significant to the Nahuas, that 'poetic knowledge coming from the interior of Heaven,' was the key with which to penetrate the realm of Truth. Indeed it can be stated that all of Nahuatl thought had its roots deep in the wellstream of poetry." Roberto Trujillo, "Unique and Limited-Edition Artists' Books" in Gustavo Ramos Rivera: "Much of Ramos Rivera's art clearly evinces his experiences and cultural background from Mexico, and this is most evident in his work for the portfolio Xochitl in Cuicatl. ... "Ramos Rivera has always loved poetry. He told me of the ways that poetry and poets have affected his work. ... For Ramos Rivera, the processes of creating art and writing poetry are similar: 'Relationships between images and language are very interesting to me. Some sentences in poetry are like condensed paintings. Haikus, for example - you hear in the rhythm of the words the drop of water, or the bird that flew away. And the same thing happens in painting, only visually.'
