CA5030 Experimental Methods in Catalysis


Objectives:

Physicochemical characterization of catalysts using a variety of technique: Adsorption measurements, specific surface area, metal surface area, pore volume, pore size distribution, hysteresis, Different methods, tplots. Structure characterization techniques, ESR, NMR for the study of solid catalysts Magnetic properties and measurements Electrical properties and measurements as a function of adsorption and catalysis. The use of these methods for the study of structure of catalysts and for the elucidation of catalytic reactions.
