The central theme of the course is the use of catalysis to solve current environmental problems. Legislation regarding environmental pollution is getting more stringent every day. Catalysis, by minimizing pollution, provides two ways to improve quality of our environment. These are: 1) development of alternative cleaner processes and 2) cleaning up emissions from current processes. In this course, the role of catalysis in both these situations will be discussed especially with the use of examples that cause air and water pollution.
