Description

This practical approach to the topic provides researchers with a solid grounding in the application-oriented use of transmission electron microscopy to investigate catalytic materials, thus serving not only as an introduction but also as a useful resource in everyday lab work.
Written by renowned researchers with a solid experience in both catalysis and electron microscopy, the authors describe the basic theoretical aspects while avoiding complex physical and mathematical models yet still providing the competence needed for a correct interpretation of the data. The applications of each technique to catalysts of any family are addressed, including 2D and 3D methodologies in different modes, as are the main experimental approaches and methodologies, as well as any difficulties encountered.
Not only professionals in electron microscopy will find valuable technical and methodical information here, but also those researchers in academia and industry involved in catalysis and imaging analytics.
