This unique reference critically analyzes the use and application of all major physical methods for determining the structure and behavior of catalysts. Each chapter presents a detailed description of a technique and its theoretical basis, a definition of its field of application, and examples of validity and limitation. Extensive cross referencing between chapters ensures seamless continuity as well as a holistic view of the field.

This new edition covers the substantial progress made since its predecessor in characterization of catalysts.

Editorial Reviews

A text that presents all the techniques used in catalysis and discusses in detail those whose recent developments appear to be promising, including electron microscopy, X-ray radial electronic distribution, XANES (X-ray-absorption near edge structure), STM (scanning tunnel microscopy), AFM (atomic force microscopy), and EXAFS (extended X-ray adsorption fine structure). The techniques presented are especially adapted to solid materials, but selected examples from homogeneous catalysis, in particular in IR and NMR spectroscopies, are included. The intention is not to present an exhaustive list of the results obtained with each technique, but to describe the technique, to explain its theoretical basis, to define its field of application, and by means of some examples to analyze objectively the validity of the results obtained.
