The Catalyst Review provides busy executives,
researchers, and production managers with a timely
update on catalysis and process advances in the
petroleum, petrochemical, environmental, and
specialty chemical industries.

More than 30 years ago The Catalyst Review was launched to fill an industry
void: a highly-dense, digest-style publication aimed directly at corporate,
R&D, academic and research science leaders in the $31 billion catalyst
industry. It continues to accomplish this through its hand-selected
experimental abstracts, in-depth company interviews, original "Special
Feature" articles, expert perspectives, industry rumors, webinars and media reviews. This
reinforces the purpose of The Catalyst Review, which is to provide fresh news and research
in a timely, easy-to-digest format. For more information, please call The Catalyst Group
Resources (TCGR) at +1-215-628-4447, or email thecatalystreview@catalystgrp.com.
