“Kinetic Models of Catalytic Reactions”, Volume 32 of Comprehensive Chemical Kinetics, Amsterdam-Oxford-New York-Tokyo, Elsevier, 1991.


This book has been written by a group of mathematicians and chemists whose common interest is in the complex dynamics of catalytic reactions. Based on developments in mathematical chemistry, a general theory is described that allows the investigation of the relationships between the kinetic characteristics of complex reactions and their detailed reaction mechanism. Furthermore, a comprehensive analysis is made of some typical mechanism of catalytic reactions, in particular for the oxidation of carbon monoxide on platinum metals.
