Spectroscopy of Catalysts
ca.350 pages, Hardcover
events that occur in a catalyst under working conditions is a very
important topic in many fields of chemistry. In order to identify
reaction intermediates and active sites in a working catalyst, the
development of characterization techniques, the design and
construction of appropriate in-situ cells and reactor probes are
inevitable. Various types of spectroscopy, diffraction methods and
scattering techniques can be used to achieve the ultimate goal of
determining and understanding quantitative
structure/composition-activity/selectivity relationships in
catalysts. Therefore, such detailed knowledge about the active sites
should enable scientists to design - in a rational way - new and
efficient catalysts for sustainable production of bulk and fine
chemicals as well as for the removal of harmful compounds in
industrial catalytic processes. This book aims to give an overview
of the different characterization techniques currently available for
performing in-situ studies on catalytic materials. Both the
possibilities and limitations are illustrated by many case studies.
This is a unique book providing a comprehensive coverage of the
latest developments in this very important and rapidly expanding
field of catalysis.
