Deactivation and Regeneration of Zeolite Catalysts

In chemical processes, the progressive deactivation of solid catalysts is a major economic concern and mastering their stability has become as essential as controlling their activity and selectivity. For these reasons, there is a strong motivation to understand the mechanisms leading to any loss in activity and/or selectivity and to find out the efficient preventive measures and regenerative solutions that open the way towards cheaper and cleaner processes. This book covers the fundamental and applied aspects of solid catalyst deactivation in a comprehensive way and encompasses the state of the art in the field of reactions catalyzed by zeolites. This particular choice is justified by the widespread use of molecular sieves in refining, petrochemicals and organic chemicals synthesis processes, by the large variety in the nature of their active sites (acid, base, acid-base, redox, bifunctional) and especially by their peculiar features, in terms of crystallinity, structural order and textural properties, which make them ideal models for heterogeneous catalysis. The aim of this book is to be a critical review in the field of zeolite deactivation and regeneration by collecting contributions from experts in the field which describe the factors, explain the techniques to study the causes and suggest methods to prevent (or limit) catalyst deactivation. At the same time, a selection of commercial processes and exemplar cases provides the reader with theoretical insights and practical hints on the deactivation mechanisms and draws attention to the key role played by the loss of activity on process design and industrial practice. Contents:Introduction to Zeolites and to Deactivation PhenomenaCharacterization of Deactivating Species and Aged CatalystsKinetics and Mechanisms of DeactivationPrevention of Deactivation and Optimal RegenerationCase Studies: FCC, Hydrocracking, MTO, Aromatization, Organic Synthesis Readership: Graduates and postgraduates in chemistry or chemical engineering, researchers and professionals in refining, petrochemical, fine chemicals and pollution abatement.

Award-winning YouTuber and blogger Zoe “Zoella” Sugg presents the third novel in her New York Times bestselling Girl Online series. Every time I walk around a corner there’s another reminder of him. Even though I’m sure he must be far away from where I am, I keep thinking I see him in a crowd of people just ahead of me....Am I going crazy? You know that saying that goosebumps happen when someone walks over your grave? That’s the same feeling I get—shivery, cold, a little bit scared—and it always makes me feel a bit pathetic. What can I do to drive the ghosts away and feel normal again? Penny’s life is back to normal. As she starts the school year, she’s ready to face the world—alone. Noah has gone off the radar after ending his world tour early, and no one, including Penny, knows where he is or why he’s left everything behind. So when Penny accepts Megan’s invitation to visit her performing arts school, it seems like an opportunity to make some new friends. Helping everyone else might be the right remedy—Elliot needs her friendship more than ever, as does her new friend Posey, who she can really help deal with her stage fright. And when charming Scottish photographer Callum comes along, Penny has more than her fair share of distractions. But is he the right kind of distraction? Can Penny truly move on when Noah’s shadow seems to haunt her around every corner?

'It's Sapiens for teenagers.' The Times LIFE IS WEIRD. Nothing gives you a sense of perspective like finding out just how weird. I'm an extremely curious chap and with this book I wanted to share the content of my noggin, because I think these are the 147 things that have helped me through this thing we call life. Sometimes because it shows how lucky we are to be here at all, but often because I’m a moron and learned whatever lesson it taught me the hard way, and I’d like to save you the pain of making the same mistakes (I refer here to the waxing of my pubic hair). Ever wondered if first times are over-rated (hint: they are), whether you’ll ever find the one (hint: there are 7 billion of us) or pondered the sheer unlikelihood of the you who is you being in the world right now? If so, then YouTube superstar and fact-obsessed, over-sharer Jim Chapman is here to explain it all – whether it’s why your heart actually aches after a break-up, what’s happening when you get hangry, or why people are just so plain RUDE online. Along the way, we’ll find out how much fun he has when Tanya’s sleep-talking and why he looked like a gangly T-rex with wonky teeth when he was a teenager. As with his videos, no subject is off-limits, as Jim lifts the lid on his life and his relationships, sharing embarrassing stories and things he’s learnt along the way (trust us, the thing about kangaroos will really freak you out).
