For catalyst characterization and analysis of catalytic reactions

Hiden Analytical provides comprehensive systems and solutions for experimental catalysis research, from initial catalyst characterization and reaction testing to downstream optimization of catalytic activity.

Overview

Catalysis defines the process whereby a reaction is influenced by the presence of a non-consumable substance known as a catalyst. Introducing a catalytic agent may increase/decrease the rate of a reaction, reduce the temperature required for the reaction to take place, or alter the outcome of the reaction entirely. This is a process that mankind has been exploiting since the beginnings of human history, but the field of catalyst analysis only stems as far back as the 19th Century.

Several competing theories were developed to explain the nature of catalytic activity, culminating with Langmuir’s theory of chemisorption, which provided the first method of quantitatively analysing the mechanism of reactions. Countless catalysts have been researched and characterised in the decades since, with virtually limitless areas of application in marketplaces today. However, catalyst researchers continue to explore new and established materials to exploit and optimise this valuable phenomenon in a new generation of technological innovation.
