The main focus of this book is “Heterogeneous Catalysis” applied for (1) the elimination of atmospheric pollutants, (2) the production of clean energy, and (3) the valorization of chemical products in order to secure a more sustainable future. To efficiently implement these processes, it is essential to understand the intrinsic properties of the catalytic material and link it to its performance in electrocatalytic/catalytic reactions. This chapter will cover the basic principles of heterogeneous catalysis, including a brief historical, social, and economic overview and a discussion on the fundamentals of adsorption and surface reactivity, the methods of preparation of catalysts, and the catalytic properties. Understanding Heterogeneous Catalysis will reinforce the ability to relate theoretical concepts to practical issues that are addressed in detail in the following chapters.
