Providing comprehensive characterization of catalytic materials pre- and post-reaction using a suite of structural and chemical techniques


ChemCatBio's team of catalysis experts has extensive experience in connecting catalyst performance and stability to the bulk and surface structural and chemical properties of the material. We employ a suite of techniques to provide comprehensive materials characterization both pre- and post-reaction. These techniques include thermogravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, FTIR/Raman/UV-Vis spectroscopy, physisorption and chemisorption, temperature programmed desorption/reduction/oxidation, x-ray diffraction, elemental composition, ultimate and proximate analysis, NMR spectroscopy, Time of Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry, and two-dimensional gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
