Key Features

* Is the first publication to cover the theory and application for modern Fischer Tropsch technology
* Contains comprehensive knowledge on all aspects relevant to the application of Fischer Tropsch technology
* No other publication looks at past, present and future applications


Fischer-Tropsch Technology is a unique book for its state-of-the-art approach to Fischer Tropsch (FT) technology. This book provides an explanation of the basic principles and terminology that are required to understand the application of FT technology. It also contains comprehensive references to patents and previous publications. As the first publication to focus on theory and application, it is a contemporary reference source for students studying chemistry and chemical engineering. Researchers and engineers active in the development of FT technology will also find this book an invaluable source of information.


Researchers and engineers active in the development and implementation of FT technology, and students in chemistry and chemical engineering
