Catalysis and Thermal Analysis
A system for catalyst characterization and analysis of catalytic reactions
Heterogeneous catalysis is an enormously broad field of study, encompassing every catalytic reaction between gas or liquid phases that occurs on the surface of a solid catalyst.
Automotive catalysts are employed to restrict and reduce the emission of gases that are detrimental to our environment.
Biocatalysts are natural compounds that can accelerate organic chemical reactions.
Understanding the reaction kinetics of a given catalyst is important, but it is not always the final word in catalyst characterization.
Electrocatalysis is a truly interdisciplinary field, attracting the interest of chemists, physicists, and surface scientists alike.
Plasma catalysis describes what occurs when a plasma discharge is coupled with a compound containing catalytic properties.
The term surface, or interface, is used to describe the boundary between two different phases; a platinum catalyst and its operating environment, for example.
Operando spectroscopy is a powerful analytical method used to characterise various molecular properties of catalytic systems including structure-activity and selectivity relationships.
Photocatalysts are materials, typically transition metal oxides or semiconductors, capable of increasing the rate of photochemical reactions.
Syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen, is pivotal in heterogeneous catalysis, producing a variety of products including fuels, fertilizers, and polymers.
