Dr. Reza Davarnejad was born in 1978 (Arak, Iran). He received his bachelor's and master's degrees in petrochemical and chemical engineering in Iran in 2002 and 2004, respectively. He joined Universiti Sains Malaysia (Penang, Malaysia) where he continued his study in chemical engineering (separation processes), focusing on supercritical technology, thermodynamics, and biotechnology. He was awarded s Ph.D. degree in 2010. So far, he has completed more than 110 publications and research activities. Furthermore, he worked as a process engineer in Shazand Petrochemical Co., a researcher assistant in Universiti Sains Malaysia, and as an invited lecturer in several universities. He had also worked as a university deputy (educational and research) at Mahallat Institute of Higher Education for about one year. He currently conducts research on environmental engineering (wastewater treatment) through advanced oxidation processes such as electro-Fenton and adsorption. He is also a consultant for some industries (local and international ones).

In organic chemistry, Alkenes, also known as olefins, are the unsaturated hydrocarbons with the general formula of CnH2n that contains one or more carbon-carbon double bonds in their chemical structures (RC=CR'). The presence of this double bond allows alkenes to react in ways that alkanes cannot. Hence, alkenes find many diverse applications in industry. These compounds are widely used as initial materials in the synthesis of alcohols, plastics, lacquers, detergents, and fuels. The current book includes all knowledge and novel data according to the structure of alkenes, their novel synthesis methods, and their applications. In addition, manufacture, properties, and the use of polyalkenes are the other important topics that are covered in this book. These data are collected by the efforts and contributions of many authors and scientists from all over the globe, and all of us are ready to further improve the contents of this book as per the readers' comments.
