Our journal is pleased to publish a commemorative issue in honor of Professor Emeritus Calvin H. Bartholomew in anticipation of his 75th birthday.
Calvin H. Bartholomew is the Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering at Brigham Young University (BYU). He received his BES degree from BYU and his PhD at Stanford University, where his advisor was Michel Boudart. Professor Bartholomew has taught and mentored students at BYU in catalysis, materials, and catalyst deactivation for 42 years. He is an active researcher in heterogeneous catalysis and a recognized authority on Fischer-Tropsch and catalyst deactivation; he has co-authored over 140 journal articles, 20 chapters/reviews, 6 books, and 6 patents. His works have received in excess of 7200 citations and their h-factor is 43. He is co-author, with Dr. Robert Farrauto, of Engelhard of Fundamentals of Industrial Catalytic Processes, a leading handbook and textbook. He has developed and taught short courses on “Heterogeneous Catalysis”, “Fischer Tropsch Synthesis”, and “Catalyst Deactivation” to more than 750 professionals from industry and academe. He has worked at Corning Inc., UnoCal, and Sandia National Labs and consulted with more than 75 company clients. He has consulted with a dozen plus start-up GTL companies and has been the principal motivator for the development of advanced supports and Fischer-Tropsch catalysts at Cosmas Inc.
In honor and recognition of Professor Bartholomew’s outstanding career contributions to the field of heterogeneous catalysis and in anticipation of his 75th birthday in 2018, this commemorative issue of Catalysts welcomes the submission of previously unpublished manuscripts from original work or reviews in the field of catalysis. We plan to receive submissions from 1 October 2016 to 31 December 2017 and manuscripts will be published online on an ongoing basis after being processed.
