This book describes innovative techniques to study catalysts and reaction mechanisms, helping chemists improve the performance of their reactions and the efficiency (through reduced materials and waste) of catalyst preparation. It explains both the scope and limitations of specific techniques, including the characterization of the electronic and structural properties of catalysts using XAFS (X-ray Absorption Fine Structure Spectroscopy); techniques for structural characterization based on X-ray diffraction and scattering; for microscopy and morphological studies; for studying the interaction of adsorbates with catalyst surfaces (Raman spectroscopy, NMR, moderate pressure XPS); and mixed techniques.

Author Biography

JOSÉ A. RODRIGUEZ, PhD, is Senior Scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Chemistry of SUNY Stony Brook. Dr. Rodriguez's research efforts center on the application of new techniques for in-situ characterization to study catalysts used for the production of clean fuels.

JONATHAN C. HANSON, PhD, is retired from the Department of Chemistry at Brookhaven National Laboratory. He continues to develop techniques to study catalytic processes under operando conditions at Brookhaven's National Synchrotron Light Source.

PETER J. CHUPAS, PhD, is Group Leader of the Structural Science Group in the X-ray Science Division of the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory. Dr. Chupas develops new in-situ techniques and sample environments to characterize catalysts.
