I am wondering where I could find literature on the Leidenfrost phenomenon.

Since I have never heard of it, it sounds like it would be hard to find in a library card catalog - but you could try. More likely would be to look in the index areas of books that discuss liquid physics or chemistry. If none of those work, looking in the subject index of an abstracting journal (like Physics Abstracts, or the Science Citation Index) should definitely get you somewhere. You will probably need to get to a big University library for that.
