Title: Catalytic activation of carbon monoxide

Abstract

Research into the catalytic activation of carbon monoxide has direct applications to the industrial use of synthesis gas as a feedstock for manufacturing synfuels and other organic chemicals. Synthesis gas is comprised of hydrogen/carbon monoxide mixtures produced from coal and other carbonaceous materials. Its potential uses include production of oxygenated organic material such as methanol and ethylene glycol, conversion to liquid fuels via the Fischer-Tropsch reaction, and production of hydrogen via the shift reaction. Such applications are crucial to the effort to reduce dependence on petroleum and petroleum products. This volume's twenty-one chapters focus on the design of efficient catalysts for processes such as those mentioned and on the chemistry of the fundamental reaction mechanisms involved. The major emphasis is on homogeneous catalysis, and questions of characterizing catalysis pathways on surfaces are addressed. Specific topics include Lewis acid and proton-induced reduction of carbon monoxide, the chemistry of carbene-like dihaptoacyls, hydrocarbon formation on polymer-supported eta/sup 5/-cyclopentadienyl cobalt, syngas homologation of aliphatic carboxylic acids, and mechanistic aspects of the homogeneous water gas shift reaction. All papers have been abstracted and indexed.
