In-situ X-ray Studies of Clean Catalytic Technologies

  • Adam F. Lee (a1), Christine V. Ellis (a1), Mark A. Newton (a2), Christopher M. Parlett (a1) and Karen Wilson...

The rational design of new heterogeneous catalysts for clean chemical technologies can be accelerated by molecular level insight into surface chemical processes. In-situ methodologies, able to provide time-resolved and/or pressure dependent information on the evolution of reacting adsorbed layers over catalytically relevant surfaces, are therefore of especial interest. Here we discuss the application of in-situ XPS and in-situ, synchronous DRIFTS/MS/XAS methodologies to elucidate the active site in Pd-catalyzed, selective aerobic oxidation of allylic alcohols.
