Hydrotreating catalysis with transition metal sulphides is one of the most important areas of industrial heterogeneous catalysis. The present book deals with the chemical and catalytic aspects of transition metal sulphides, focusing on their use in hydrotreating catalysis. The book¿s 12 chapters present reviews of solid-state, coordination and organometallic chemistry, surface science and spectroscopic studies, quantum chemical calculations, catalytic studies with model and real catalysts, as well as refinery processes. A presentation of state-of-the-art background to pertinent work in the field. Can be used as an introduction to the chemical and catalytic properties of transition metal sulphides as well as an advanced level reference.

Editorial Reviews

`Overall, this book gives an up-to-date account of the nature of HDS processes viewed from different areas of chemistry. It will be of great value as a work of reference for the increasing number of organometallic chemists who are developing homogeneous organometallic catalysts for HDS reactions, a research field that is yet to be thoroughly explored.' Journal of Organometallic Chemistry, 584 (1999)
