SUMMARY:

'The next JK Rowling' (Today Programme, USA) 'An astounding achievement. I can't wait for the second book! *****' - Reader Review 'A great read for those who enjoyed The Hunger Games and Divergent. *****' - Reader Review ____________________ Rose Elmsworth has a secret. For eighteen years, the world has been divided into the magically Gifted and the non-magical Ashkind, but Rose's identity is far more dangerous. At fifteen, she has earned herself a place alongside her father in the Department, a brutal law-enforcement organisation run by the Gifted to control the Ashkind. But now an old enemy is threatening to start a catastrophic war, and Rose faces a challenging test of her loyalties. How much does she really know about her father's past? How far is the Department willing to go to keep the peace? And, if the time comes, will Rose choose to protect her secret, or the people she loves? ____________________ Further praise for Helena Coggan and The Catalyst 'The Catalyst is a complicated, rich world of magic and danger . . . Both fantastical and startlingly relevant and contemporary, it's tense, exciting, engaging and has at its heart a central character whose incredibly personal story becomes caught up in huge battles and some even bigger ideas.' - Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August 'A pulsing, labyrinthine, emotionally visceral plot' - Metro 'A phenomenal achievement . . . assured, frightening, action-packed' - Observer

SUMMARY:

A good job, hard work, IQ, EQ, good communication skills-these are all ingredients for a successful life. The presence of these elements alone, however, does not guarantee success. To convert them into long-term success, you need certain stimuli which precipitate or accelerate your growth. This robustly effective book identifies the various catalysts that you can cultivate and how you can leverage them to propel yourself in your work and life. Accessible, engaging and easy to follow, and written by someone who has experienced all this in real life and not in theory, Catalyst will arm you with the right tools to succeed at your work place and get the most out of every moment, every day.

SUMMARY:

The Catalyst Effect powerfully shows readers how to expand their impact beyond job boundaries to elevate the performance of their teams and ultimately the overall organization. It describes how individuals can "lead from wherever they are" regardless of their role or title. The authors provide a practical, research-based roadmap for developing and applying 12 key competencies to multiply one's impact. As a result, the group and organization achieve greater success; team dynamics improve; and individuals reap greater fulfillment, build stronger skills, and grow in stature while magnifying their value. Real examples from business, sports, the arts, and not-for-profits bring the techniques to life and illustrate how to apply them--making this book a valuable resource for professionals and leaders alike.

SUMMARY:

For fans of Uglies and The Maze Runner comes a complex, thrill-filled love story that will make you question exactly what it means to be human In the past year Zel lost her father, the boy she loves, her safety, and any future she might have imagined for herself. Now she, her sister, and the band of genetic outcasts they've come to call their family are forced on the run when their safe house is attacked by men with neural guns. But on the way to a rumored haven in Chicago, Zel hears something--a whisper from Cy, the boy who traded himself for her sister's safety. And when she veers off plan in order to search for him, what she finds is not what she expected. There's more to their genetic mutations than they ever imagined...aspects that make them wonder if they might be accepted by the outside world after all.

Dynamic Modelling Bifurcation And Chaotic Behaviour Of Gas Solid Catalytic Reactors

Dynamic Modelling Bifurcation And Chaotic Behaviour Of Gas Solid Catalytic Reactors

Download

SUMMARY:

The discovery of chaos has considerably widened the scope of our knowledge regarding the dynamics of physical systems. Gas-solid catalytic reactors are important units in the petrochemical and petroleum refining industries and in the field of environmental protection. The knowledge required to understand and analyse the bifurcation, dynamics and chaotic behaviour of these reactors is widespread among many disciplines including chemical reaction, engineering, chemistry, physics and pure and applied mathematics. This book is the first to consolidate the progress in understanding the complex dynamics of catalytic reactors. It covers the most important aspects of the problem, which includes the formulation of the dynamic models for these systems, the basic dynamic, bifurcation and chaotic characteristics of the different types and configurations of these units, the industrial relevance of these complex dynamic phenomena, as well as the mathematical tools necessary for the detailed analysis of these complex dynamics. This book is easy to read, and will therefore appeal to a wide spectrum of chemical engineering students and chemical engineers in academia and in industry, also students and researchers from other disciplines who are interested in the rich and fascinating complex dynamic characteristics of gas-solid catalytic reactors, will find it both interesting and useful.

Structured Catalysts And Reactors

Structured Catalysts And Reactors

Download

SUMMARY:

Interest in structured catalysts is steadily increasing due to the already proven, as well as potential, advantages of these catalysts. Updating the comprehensive coverage of the first edition published in 1998 with the latest science and applications, Structured Catalysts and Reactors, Second Edition gives detailed information on all aspects of structured catalysts and reactors, including: materials, mass transfer, selectivity, activity, and stability; catalyst preparation, design, and characterization; process development; modeling and optimization; reactor design; and operation costs and considerations. The book first examines how monolithic catalysts are used to clean exhaust gas from gasoline engines, treat industrial off-gases, burn fuels in commercial settings, and synthesize chemicals in two- and three-phase processes. It discusses configurations, microstructure, physical properties, and manufacture of ceramic and metallic monoliths before directing its focus to arranged catalysts and structured packings in terms of mass transfer. The book then explores catalytically active membranes and filters, featuring metallic membranes, permeation mechanisms, preparation and modeling, commercial membranes, and the latest applications, such as zeolitic membranes. Finally, several chapters present techniques for incorporating catalytic species into the structured catalyst support and controlling catalyst nanoporosity. This book conveys the scientific as well as economic advantages of using these unconventional catalytic techniques. With over 1500 references, tables, drawings, and photographs, as well as in-depth discussions and a new approach to catalytic processes, Structured Catalysts and Reactors, Second Edition is an essential reference for anyone working with or studying catalysis.
