Course Objective Catalysis has been attracted enormous interest in the second half of the last century and became a sub division in chemistry. From the molecular aspect, it is related with inorganic chemistry and the coordination compounds have great importance, as well. This topic which has very important industrial applications might be studied under two sub titles such as homogen catalysis and heterogen catalysis.
Course Content History of catalysis, catalytic processes in industry chemical kinetics of catalyzed reactions, bonding and elementary steps in catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, homogeneous catalysis with transition metal complexes, bio-catalysis
