Taking in situ catalysis to a new level

This article is HOT as recommended by the referees

Resolving kinetics and dynamics of a catalytic reaction inside a fixed bed reactor by combined kinetic and spectroscopic profiling Raimund Horn and colleagues have combined the measurement of kinetic and spectroscopy reactor profiles to establish catalyst structure–function relationships in this HOT Catalysis Science & Technology paper. 

Their research focuses on the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane to ethylene using a MoO3 based catalyst supported on γ-alumina spheres.  We are shown how measuring spatially resolved kinetic and spectroscopic profiles along the centreline of a fixed bed tubular reactor can be used to resolve the dynamics of a catalyst under working conditions.
